Fortified Palace 
of a 

I7]edian E^ing 

I FIRST set eyes on this 
large mound of earth some 
one hundred feet high and 
covering almost 35 acres In 
Western Iran in 1961. For 
four summers — 1965, 1967, 
1969 and 1971— I led an 
archaeological expedition 
from Toronto's Royal Museum 
to excavate the ancient site 
ofGodinTepe. Our work had 
just begun when we knew our 
first impressions of Godin's 
importance were well founded. 
All we thought might be 
there is — and more. Time 
and space preclude telling 
the whole story but let us 
take a close look at just 
one of the many periods of 
ancient occupation at 
God in —

You may have the wrong idea about how ICC s secret 
system of Cosolargy develops cosmic consciousness 


There still are a few confused people 
around who do not fully understand or 
appreciate the way ICC develops cos- 
mic consciousness. Cosolargy is some- 
thing new and dynamic, yet it is as old 
as the history of civilization. 

These people believe that we offer a 
hodge-podge of old ideas put into mod- 
ern form. They are wrong — completely 
wrong. 

Cosolargy is a religious system based 
on science. Yet it is the nucleus of what 
such teachers as Jesus, Buddha and 
Viracocha taught. They were the 
world's first nuclear physicists who ap- 
plied cosmic/solar forces. It was the 
key to the universe which gave them 
power to work miracles. 

Cosolargy is in repossession of some- 
thing lost for centuries. How we re-dis- 
covered it is a story in itself. A story 
worth reading about if you happen to 
be seeking self-realization. 

The Incas of Peru were the last to 
apply this system. Isolated on the 


American continent, priesthood orders 
maintained the tradition until the Span- 
ish conquistadores drove them into ref- 
uge. We came upon the secret in the 
Amazon jungles beyond the towering 
Andes. 

We can understand why some people 
are curious as to how Cosolargy is able 
to put the individual in contact with 
cosmic powers of the universe. This is 
our secret of course and we are rather 
selective in choosing those with whom 
we share it. 

If you wish, we will send you our 
free dossier via air mail upon request. 
It will explain how the system was re- 
claimed, how research continues and 
how you may participate in its living 
concepts. Perhaps you've been consid- 
ering other systems. You won't once 
you've learned the truth about Coso- 
largy.

An exhilarating excursion 
into 

moon-flight and faith! 



8 EMPTINESS 

by L. C. Beckett 

■ Have you thrilled, as millions 
have, at the astronauts' rocket 
flights to the Moon? Then you will 
find exhilaration in this excursion 
into space science and faith. Will 
today's brilliant science— uniting 
nations, races, and the very plan- 
ets in space— take the place of 
the world's old religions? The au- 
thor writes, "It behooves us to try 
to understand what it really means 
— not only as intellectual theory 
but as a reality which affects our 
lives." Here is a very readable 
book, right up to date, exciting to 
read. Only U.S. edition. A Quest 
paperbound, 1 04 pages, only $1 .45. 


THE 
HIDDEN 
WISDOM 
IN 
THE 
HOLY BIBLE 

by Geoffrey Hoc/son 


■ The challenges of modern 
times and the revelations of mod- 
ern science make it difficult for 
many persons to accept word-for- 
word readings of the Judeo- 
Christian scriptures. Yet the more 
unbelievable some of the Testa- 
ment stories seem, the more im- 
portant it is, says the author, to 
hunt for believable true meaning. 
Two volumes are now available— 

VOL. ONE, the introduction to the 
series, explains Scriptural language 
and how it is interpreted. Includes an 
interpretation of the life of Jesus. 240 
pages. Paperbound, $1.95. 

VOL. TWO is devoted to extracting 
the hidden wisdom in the Book of 
Genesis, the first 25 chapters. 495 
pages. Paperbound, $2.95.

"AN ASTARIAN IN NEED NEVER WALKS ALONE' 


/ have never understood why 
some people feel that to know 
nature is to offend God. Among 
the reactions I encounter I still 
come across those persons who 
would tear the telescope from Gal- 
ileo's eyes or wrest the dissecting 
knife from the hand of Vesalius. 
Such persons may be no less sin- 
cere in their search for enlighten- 
ment, but they seek for some mir- 
acle outside of nature; they for- 
get that nature itself is the great- 
est miracle. In learning to know 
nature, we learn to know some- 
thing of God. And scientific re- 
search, if undertaken in this 
spirit, is a form of ivorship. 

— Robert A. Wilson, M.D. 
Author of Feminine Forever 

THE INCREASING openness 
of our society toward psychic 
matters is illustrated by the work 
of Sr. M. Justa Smith, a Francis- 
can nun who is chairman of the 
Natural Sciences Department of 
Rosary Hill College of Buffalo, 
N. Y. Sister Justa has a doctorate 
in biochemistry and master's de- 
grees in both mathematics and 
physical chemistry. And she is 
doing important research in the 
paranormal. 
That a Franciscan nun, a sci- 



entist at that, should be doing 
original research on healing 
shows how the winds of change 
are blowing. Sister Justa studies 
the powers of healers and theo- 
rizes on how these powers oper- 
ate. Specifically, she asks wheth- 
er the laying on of hands has 
curative value and if so, why? 

Recently she told Dick Burke 
of the Buffalo Evening News 
that "man may be approaching 
the realization of his full poten- 
tial. This may mean his discov- 
ery and use of life forces and 
energy fields we only now sus- 
pect. . . ."

"HEALING" EXPERIMENTS 

ONE OF Sister Justa's experi- 
ments is funded by the Hu- 
man Dimensions Institute where 
she is also director of research. 
It deals with the effects of heal-

ing hands on enzymes. 

Enzymes are produced by the 
body and bring about chemical 
changes or speed up bodily ac- 
tivity without themselves being 
destroyed in the process. They 
were selected for the experi- 
ments because their activity can 
be measured at the molecular 
level by a spectrophotometer 
which records information on 
moving graph paper. Theoreti- 
cally, then, these measurements 
are more objective than if they 
were made by human observa- 
tion — and anyway enzyme ac- 
tivity is not apparent to the 
naked eye. 

Sister Justa's principal healer 
is Oskar Estebany, a retired 
Hungarian colonel now living in 
Canada. The enzyme she used 
was trypsin which is produced by 
the pancreas and aids in digest- 
ing food. 

Estebany held a closed flask of 
trypsin in his hands for 75 min- 
utes. Another similar flask was 
subjected to damaging ultraviolet 
rays and then handed to him; a 
third was subjected to an intense 
magnetic field (this is known to 
increase enzyme activity) and a 
fourth control flask was not tam- 
pered with but maintained at the 
same temperature as Estebany's 
hands. 

Sister Justa's graph showed 
that the flask of trypsin Estebany 
held performed both "qualitative-

ly and quantitatively similar to 
that (subjected to) a magnetic 
field." She compares the results 
of this "healing treatment" with 
a life force" or a "psi field." 

Three other psychics were 
tested in similar experiments 
with similar results — the "heal- 
ing power" affected the trypsin 
by increasing its activity. 

"It is possible this effect could 
contribute to overall good health 
and to general therapy since it 
helps provide the blood with 
amino acids necessary for 
growth and repair," Sister Justa 
said. 

However, when experiments 
were done using two other en- 
zymes, Sister Justa found heal- 
er's abilities do not affect all en- 
zymes in the same way and that 
some were not affected at all. 
Her successful experiments were 
conducted in the summer of 1967. 
When Estebany returned for ad- 
ditional experimental work in the 
fall he had no influence on the 
enzymes. 

Sister Justa's paper concluded 
from this that the ability of a 
healer "depends upon his person- 
al state of mind."

THIS HAND CARVED 
MONARCH OF THE 
JUNGLE SUPPORTS A 
PERFECT CRYSTAL 
BALL — and both are yours 
for only $6.95 



In ancient days seers and crystal gazers 
used carved images of elephants to hold 
small crvstal balls employed to make spe- 
cial readings. Today, antique collectors 
pay $100 and more for these artifacts — 
but the Venture Bookshop has assembled 
an authentic, modern crystal ball set 
which is yours for only $6.95. 

The elephant and its bone-ivory tusks 
were hand-carved in Kenya, Africa, by 
the Akamba tribe. The oil-rubbed carv- 
ings average about 2" high. The crystal 
is optical-quality virgin acrylic, 
diameter, manufactured to highest stan- 
dards of precision. 

The crystal nestles safely into a hand- 
shaped hollow carved into the back of the 
elephant — exactly as shown in this un- 
retouched photograph.

guarantee.

to be a relationship between the 
life fields shown by Kirlian pho- 
tography, by the traditions of the 
human aura, by the electromag- 
netic field experiments of Prof. 
Harold Saxton Burr and by the 
plant-polygraph experiments of 
Cleve Backster and others that 
points to a common explanation 
— all of it involving life fields 
and healing. But this apparent 
relationship has by no means 
been conclusively proved, excit- 
ing as it is. And what is the 
church's attitude toward all this 
and toward Sr. M. Justa Smith's 
work? 

Sister Justa replies calmly, 
"There's nothing contrary to of- 
ficial church doctrine in these in- 
quiries. Actually the church 
should get itself involved more 
in this area. Perhaps if some of 
these valid contemporary healers 
had lived in the early church they 
might have been declared saints. 
Canonization requires that the re- 
cipient of sainthood must have 
demonstrated paranormal facul- 
ties capable of being document- 
ed. . . . 

"There are many biblical re- 
ports of healing. All of these are 
not necessarily miraculous, su- 
pernatural or mystical. Some of 
these healings simply are within 
the physical reality we now are 
uncovering."

Is it true the amazing secret of Telecult Power 

automatically brings you 
everything you desire . . . 

Riches, Love, Fine Possessions, Friends, Power, Secret 
Knowledge, and much, much more? See for yourself! 


A staggering miracle has happened! A bril- 
liant psychic researcher has discovered a se- 
cret so awesome, so powerful, that It Is said 
to bring you everything you desire. 

Reese P Dubin, in his daring new book, 
"TELECULT POWER." lays bare this magic 
secret and reveals how It can bring you for- 
tune, love and happlnesi! How would you like 
to sit in your living room, give the command 
(or love and have your loved one instantly ap- 
pear at your side? Or give the command for 
money and suddenly And a big, thick roll of 
bills In your hand? 

"GREAT WEALTH AND POWER 
CAN BE YOURS!" 
For many year*, Reese P. Dubin searched for 
a way to call upon the Invisible forces at work 
all around us. These investigations brought 
him knowledge that goes back to the dim re- 
cesses of the past. 

One day, to his astonishment, he discovered 
that he could actually broadcast silent com- 
mands, which others Instantly obeyed! "No 
one could escape the power of this amazing 
secret," says Mr. Dubin. "Everyone — high or 
low. Ignorant or wise — Is subject to Its spell." 
He commanded others to sleep, get up and 
come to him. talk or not talk — and obey his 
silent wishes! 

Working relentlessly. Reese Dubin succeeded 
in perfecting a new kind of Instrument — an 
extension of the mind — called a Tele-Photo 
Transmitter. An instrument that concentrates 
your thoughts and sends them, like streak- 
ing bullets, to their destination. 

STARTLING PROOF 
Mr. Dubin explains how this fantastic Trans- 
mitter has already worked for countless men 
and women, in all walks of life. "It's worked 
every time and II will work for you loo! Al- 
most overnight, you can start to multiply 
riches, win love, favors, gifts, new friends — 
anything you ask for!" Mr. Dubin relates. 
And he gives you specific case histories: 

• Diamonds and jewels have appeared, seem- 
ingly out of nothing! 

• A farmer received a pot full of gold! 

• An old woman used this secret to regain

A CONTRARY VIEW 

NOT ALL Americans-— Catholic 
and Protestant — agree with 
Sister Justa. A reader recently 
sent us a clipping from the Mat- 
awan, N.J., Bayshore Indepen- 
dent which reported on a meet- 
ing of the Keyport Board of 
Education. Courses in astrology, 
parapsychology and Hindu phi- 
losophy had been included in the 
evening adult school curriculum. 

But they're included no more. 
The Board tossed out the courses 
in astrology and parapsychology 
because they "are a study of 
evil." The Rev. Eugene Gregory, 
a Board member, objected on the 
grounds that the school should 
not teach "cults and witchcraft." 

Board member George Bolte 
disagreed and asked the Rever- 
end Gregory if Hinduism should 
also be eliminated. 

"Hinduism doesn't pose a 
threat to our nation," the Rever- 
end Gregory replied, "but witch- 
craft does." 

And so a man who doesn't 
know the difference between para- 
psychology and witchcraft has 
taken another bold step to save 
adult Americans from knowledge 
about one of the most important 
subjects of our time.

"threat to our nation" . . . "this 
study of evil": 

Don Cherry is a specialist — 
a police artist — with the Mobile 
Crime Section of the Washington, 
D.C., police department. He in- 
terviews victims of crimes and 
from their descriptions he 
sketches the faces of criminals. 

In the past four years Don 
Cherry's drawings have helped 
convict 60 criminals and helped 
in the arrest of at least 15 others 
who now await trial. 

Cherry discovered his ability by 
accident when he sat in on an in- 
terview with a rape victim. A 
detective attempted to match the 
victim's description of her at- 
tacker by changing and reshuffl- 
ing plastic overlays of various 
facial features — eyes, noses, 
ears, eyebrows — with what has 
been laughingly called "the Dick 
Tracy identification kit." Cherry 
listened and idly sketched as the 
victim was talking. When the ses- 
sion was over the victim pointed 
not to the complete composite of 
the "Dick Tracy" set but to Cher- 
ry's sketch. "That's the man," 
she said. 

An accomplishment which 
earned Cherry national publicity 
was the identification of a young 
black man who had been blud- 
geoned and burned beyond recog- 
nition. Cherry examined the 
corpse for three hours — then 
an image took form in his mind 


Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship 


Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship pro- 
vides a unique opportunity for spir- 
itual development within an organi- 
zation that is actively exploring the 
frontiers leading to greater under- 
standing of Man's spiritual and 
psychical nature. 

Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship 
(SFF) was formed in 1956 as an 
inter-faith, non-profit fellowship to 
sponsor, explore and interpret the 
growing interest in psychic phenom* 
ena and mystical experiences to the 
traditional churches and others . . . 
and relate these experiences to ef- 
fective prayer, spiritual healing, 
personal survival and spiritual ful- 
fillment. 

SFF is spiritual in that it deals 
with phenomena which relate to 
God, the human spirit, and the fu- 
ture life. It is frontier because it 
explores matters beyond the usual 
range of church worship and activi- 
ty. It is a fellowship of those who, 
having accepted the validity of one 
or more of these phenomena, would 
encourage each other and ultimately 
the whole Church to seek greater 
reality and growth in spiritual life. 

If you are Interested In these 
areas of spiritual development, you 
are Invited and encouraged to join 
Spiritual Frontiers. 

SFF members get a progressive 
reading list and use of a lending 
library-by-mail free ... a monthly 
newsletter and quarterly journal 
. . . participation in interesting re- 
search studies . . . help in forming 
study groups . . . and invitations 
to special programs, retreats and 
seminars.

and he sketched it. Some days 
later a patrolman carrying a 
poster bearing Cherry's draw- 
ing was stopped in a laundro- 
mat by a customer who identi- 
fied it as his cousin. With that 
identification the murderer was 
caught, convicted and sentenced 
to life imprisonment. 

Cherry appears to work 
through some sort of ESP. He 
doesn't know how to explain it 
but he told Earl Byrd, staff 
writer for the Washington Star 
News, "There is something which 
passes between me and the 
victim of a crime ... a feel- 
ing, call it what you will, but 
I know when it's right."

"VIBRATIONS AROUND ME" 

AT 4:00 P.M. on Sunday, No- 
vember 12, 1972, it occurred 
to Mrs. Leticia Shindo of Scotts- 
dale, Ariz., that a sick friend 
was in serious trouble. "I had 
a premonition," she told police 
later. "I had vibrations around 
me. I think in my mind that 
Mr. Grover needs help." 

Mrs. Shindo called her 16- 
year-old son George and told 
him her fears for the welfare 
of Jim Grover, an ailing 58- 
year-old bachelor who lives in 
an isolated home nearly two 
hours away. George replied, 
"That's funny, I just had the 
same feeling about Mr. Grover." 


I SEE BY THE PAPERS 


19 


Jerry Cohen of the Los Angeles 
Times wrote the story of what 
happened next. 

"Like Mrs. Shindo, Grover is 
a member of Astara, an organiza- 
tion of ESP enthusiasts," Cohen 
wrote. "Minutes later, accom- 
panied by George's best friend, 
Dennis Roeper, 17, mother and 
son were bound for Grover ' s 
residence. . . ," 

They had no inkling of the 
kind of trouble Grover was in. 
At the exact moment of their 
joint premonition Grover was be- 
ing held prisoner at gunpoint by 
two multiple murderers who had 
escaped 24 hours before from the 
Arizona State Prison in Florence, 
seven and one-half miles to the 
southwest. 

When Mrs. Shindo drove up to 
Grover's residence her worry in- 
creased because their mutual 
ESP, devoloped through practice, 
is such that Grover always an- 
ticipates her visits and is waiting 
for her. 

Instead, the door was locked. 
Mrs. Shindo opened the door with 
the key Grover had given her to 
use in case of emergency and 
they entered an empty living 
room. Seconds later all three 
were made prisoners by a "high, 
tall" man who emerged from the 
kitchen carrying a .22-caliber 
hand-fashioned zip gun. She 
learned later that this was Ray- 
mond Hudgens, one of the es-

The Lazy Man's 
Way to Riches 

"Most People Arc Too Busy Earning a Living to Make Any Money" 


I used to work hard. The 18-hour 
days. The 7-day weeks. 

But I didn't start making big 
money until I did less — a lot less. 

For example, this ad took about 
2 hours to write. With a little luck, 
it should earn me 50, maybe a 
hundred thousand dollars. 

What's more, I'm going to ask 
you to send me 10 dollars for 
something that'll cost me no more 
than 50 cents. And 1*11 try to make 
it so irresistible that you'd be a 
darned fool not to do it. 

After all. why should you care 
if I make $9.50 profit if I can 
show you how to make a lot more? 

What if I'm so sure that you will 
make money my Lazy Man's Way 
that I'll make you the world's most 
unusual guarantee? 

And here it is: I won't even cash 
your check or money order for 31 
days after, I've sent you my mate- 
rial. 

That'll give you plenty of time to 
get it, look it over, try it out. 

If you don't agree that it's worth 
at least a hundred times what you 
invested, send it back. Your un- 
cashed check or money order will 
be put in the return mail. 

The only reason I won't send it 
to you and bill you or send it 
C.O.D. is because both these meth- 
ods involve more time and money. 

And I'm already going to give 
you the biggest bargain of your 
life. 

Because I'm going to tell you 
what it took me 11 years to per- 
fect: How to make money the Lazy 


Man's Way. 

O.K. — now I have to brag a 
little. I don't mind it. And it's 
necessary — to prove that sending 
me the 10 dollars . . . which I'll 
keep "in escrow" until you're sat- 
isfied ... is the smartest thing 
you ever did. 

I live in a home that's worth 
$100,000. I know it is, because I 
turned down an offer for that 
much. My mortgage is less than 
half that, and the only reason I 
haven't paid it off is because my 
Tax Accountant says I'd be an 
idiot. 

My "office." about a mile and 
a half from my home, is right on 
the beach.. My view is so breath- 
taking that most people comment 
that they don't see how I get any 
work done. But I do enough. About 
6 hours a day, 8 or 9 months a 
year. 

The rest of the time we spend 
at our mountain "cabin." I paid 
$30,000 for it — cash. 

I have 2 boats and a Cadillac. 
All paid for. 

We have stocks, bonds, invest- 
ments, cash in the bank. But the 
most important thing I have is 
priceless: time with my family. 

And I'll show you just how I did 
it — the Lazy Man's Way — a se- 
cret that I've shared with just a 
few friends til now. 

It doesn't require "education." 
I'm a high school graduate. 

It doesn't require "capital." 
When I started out. I was so deep 
in debt that a lawyer friend ad- 


20 


(Advertisement) 


vised bankruptcy as the only way 
out. He was wrong. We paid off 
our debts and. outside of the mort- 
gage, don't owe a cent to any 
man. 

It doesn't require "luck." I've 
had more than my share, but I'm 
not promising you that you'll make 
as much money as I have. And you 
may do better; I personally know 
one man who used these princi- 
ples, worked hard, and made 11 
million dollars in 8 years. But 
money isn't everything. 

It doesn't require "talent." Just 
enough brains to know what to 
look for. And I'll tell you that. 

It doesn't require "youth." One 
woman I worked with is over 70. 
She's travelled the world over, 
making all the money she needs, 
doing only what I taught her. 

It doesn't require "experience." 
A widow in Chicago has been av- 
eraging $25,000 a year for the past 


5 years, using my methods. 

What does it require? Belief. 
Enough to take a chance. Enough 
to absorb what I'll send you. 
Enough to put the principles into 
action. If you do just that — noth- 
ing more, nothing less — the result 
trill be hard to believe. Remember 
— I guarantee it. 

You don't have to give up your 
job. But you may soon be making 
so much money that you'll be able 
to. Once again — I guarantee it. 

The wisest man I ever knew told 
me something I never forgot: 
"Most people are too busy earn- 
ing a living to make any money." 

Don't take as long as I did to find 
out he was right. 

I'll prove it to you, if you'll send 
in the coupon now. I'm not asking 
you to "believe" me. Just try it. 
If I'm wrong, all you've lost is a 
couple of minutes and 8-cent stamp. 
But what if I'm right?

caped murderers. Hudgens and

Schmid, Jr., took all four per- 
sons, including Grover, in Mrs. 
Shindo's car to Tempe. There 
they made their escape. Neither 
Grover, Mrs. Shindo nor the two

There seems little doubt that

WHAT WILL BE. . . 

DY ACTING on a premonition 
-E* or "hunch" can we change 
the course of events? Consider 
these cases : 

Saul Cotton of Desert Hot 
Springs, Calif., might have ig- 
nored his premonition had it been 
less persistent. According to the 
National Tattler Cotton awoke 
one morning in the fall of 1972 
feeling that something was amiss 
concerning his real estate in- 
terests in Orange County, some 
125 miles away. But he was not 
about to drive that far with only 
a hunch to go on. When he 
couldn't shake the feeling he de- 
cided to call his friend Leo Ellis 
Wagner, a psychic who pre- 
viously had advised him on busi- 
ness matters.

trouble either but felt that Cot- 
ton should make the trip to 
Orange County without delay. 
The real estate man recently had 
acquired a building in the town 
of Orange and Wagner told him, 
"Stand in front of the building 
and you'll meet someone who'll 
help you." When Saul's wife also 
insisted that he go Cotton re- 
luctantly made the trip. Sure 
enough, standing in front of the 
building was a man apparently 
doing some repair work. 

"Didn't you just buy this prop- 
erty ? " asked the stranger. 
"That's funny — the man next 
door says he just bought it too." 

Cotton contacted the man next 
door and found that the seller 
indeed had collected money from 
them both. They decided to join 
forces and as partners they ob- 
tained a deed from the seller for 
a lower price. 

Thus acting on a premonition 
averted unfavorable conse- 
quences. But what about banker 
Alan C. Ray of Baltimore, Md.? 
According to the Associate Press 
Ray awoke the morning of No- 
vember 22, 1972, with the feeling 
a robbery would be attempted 
at the branch of Union Trust 
Company which he managed. 
Ray recalled having a similar 
premonition the previous Feb- 
ruary when thieves made off with 
$4,500. Taking no chances this 
time, he called the police who

BREAK OUT ... and Soar to the Outer Limits of 
Sensory Experience 


BEYOND HYPNOSIS: 

Explorations i 

by DON GIBBONS 


n Hyperempiria <"» JSSffSA 

, Ph.D., West Georgia College 


The long-awaited book by Professor Gibbons opens up a new channel of 
communication with the Inner Mind that dispenses with the need for the 
"sleeping; trance." Indeed, by stripping away the trappings and embellish- 
ments of the 'hypnotic' situation, hyperempiria may well short-cut the path 
to that realm of Expanded Consciousness that we have all been striving 
to reach. 


The author of this book is not a 
dreamer . . . certainly not a cultist 
trying to impose upon the public another 
gimmick system. His findings are based 
on the cold, calculating experimentations 
of the scientist; his formulations are in- 
genious though cautious: his results are 
promising without being exorbitant. 

The explorations by scientists of the 
altered states of consciousness have led 


to an increased awareness of the largely 
untapped resources slumbering beneath 
the threshold of our waking selves. The 
author describes a method by means of 
which these subwaking powers may be 
stimulated to enhance our sensory ex- 
periences, expand our consciousness and 
lead us to a fuller realization of human 
potential than is possible bv other, less 
scientific systems.

HER DREAM MAN 

AN EVEN stranger premoni- 
tion — if that's what it was 
— is recounted by Carl Bakal in 
the October 1972 Good House- 
keeping. In the 1950's pretty 
Linda Ann Buritsch of Riviera 
Beach, Md., was a typical Amer- 
ican teen-ager, active in sports, 
popular with boys and much in- 
volved in creative writing and 
music. In 1963, when she was 
just out of high school, Linda 
sketched a portrait — the first 
she had ever done — of a good- 
looking young man. When her 
mother asked who he was Linda, 
giggling, replied, "You won't be- 
lieve it but this is my dream 
man." She said she had had a 
sudden impulse to draw some- 
one and the portrait of a boy 
was the result. She framed the 
sketch and kept it for the four 
years she attended Hood Col- 
lege in Frederick, Md.

After graduation in 1967 Linda 
taught English at Annapolis 
Junior High School. By July 1968 
the severe headaches which oc- 
casionally had plagued her col- 
lege years were becoming more 
frequent and more severe. Final- 
ly, she became violently ill and 
was rushed to the hospital where 
her affliction was diagnosed as a 
brain tumor. By then it was too 
late; at the age of 22 Linda died. 

Although dazed with grief Lin- 
da's parents consented to the 
donation of her eyes to the Medi- 
cal Eye Bank of Maryland. 
Within hours the cornea from 
one was transplanted to the left 
eye of George "Woody" John- 
son, a 22-year-old college student 
from Charleston, S.C., who suf- 
fered from keratoconus, a rare 
disorder which was making him 
nearly blind in that eye. 

After the successful transplant 
Woody became curious about the 
donor of the cornea that restored 
his vision, especially when he 
learned from hospital records 
that the donor had been exactly 
his own age. While the identity 
of donors is confidential informa- 
tion, the eye bank's director, 
Ted Griffith, was impressed by 
Woody's sincere desire to thank 
the donor's family. He put Woody 
in touch with the Buritsches and 
in October 1968 Woody went to 
Riviera Beach to visit them. 

Both Woody and his hosts were

struck by the similarities be- 
tween Linda and Woody. Their 
temperaments and interests were 
remarkably alike. When he left, 
Woody gave the Buritsches a 
photo of himself which Linda's 
mother promptly framed and 
displayed in the living room. She 
felt drawn to it; it was some- 
how familiar. 

In the spring of 1969 the Burit- 
sches decided to publish Linda's 
poems and stories. Going through 
her things Mrs. Buritsch came 
upon the sketch Linda had made 
of her "dream man." Hardly 
believing her eyes, she showed 
it to her husband and other 
family members. Everyone saw 
its uncanny resemblance to the 
portrait of Woody, the boy who 
regained his vision through Lin-

THE POLTERGEIST GAME 

¥T IS possible that "someone 
-I warped is playing a game 
with us" as Police Chief Donald 
Loose stated. It is possible there 
is no poltergeist loose in Dear- 
born Heights. But it is frustrat- 
ing that no one suggests that in 
the face of police failure to turn 
up a culprit, we might learn 
something from parapsychologi- 
cal investigation. 

When these frequent rock- 
throwing sorties occur, in our ob- 
servation (1) the police always

small catapult in the hands of 
some naughty boys and (2) they 
never find either. Instead we get 
the mine-run of comments and 
complaints like these from the 
Free Press: 

"I'd be willing to take the wit- 
ness stand and say that none of 
our neighbors' children would do 
a thing like this." 

"Whoever's doing this is avail- 
able all the time, day and 
night." 

"You can stay out here and get 
your brains batted out, but I'm 
going inside."

DISTURBANCE IN DETROIT 

SPEAKING OF poltergeists, I 
find it amazing that a major 
newspaper should refer to a typi- 
cal poltergeist case as a haunt- 
ing. Yet the Detroit News did 
just that last August. 

The disturbance in the Rear- 
don household in the northwest 
portion of the Michigan city has 
all the earmarks of a classic pol- 
tergeist case. It began abruptly 
in a house where there had been 
no previous disturbances nor any 
history of violence that logically 
might trigger a haunting. The 
trouble began with unexplained 
knocking sounds, built gradually

when holes mysteriously appeared 
in the walls and climaxed with 
violent movement of large pieces 
of furniture. The activity ceased 
when the family moved from the 
house, having had all they could 
stand in two weeks. 

The only element typical of 
poltergeist activity which is lack- 
ing is the "adolescent child." 
The occupants of the house were 
a 71 -year-old widow, Louise 
Reardon, her divorced daughter 
Anne Good and Mrs. Good's two 
daughter's, Kelly, nine, and Car- 
rie, eight. But poltergeists do not 
always center on an adolescent. 
Children as young as the two 
Good youngsters have been the 
focus in some cases. 

The wild variety of "normal" 
explanations put forth in polter- 
geist cases are amusing. The 
family in Detroit first suspected 
vandals were making the noises, 
although none ever was dis- 
covered when the police were 
called. Neighbors suspected such 
things as faulty water or gas 
pipes (an inspector from the gas 
company ruled out the latter) or 
a raccoon in the crawl space 
under the two-bedroom bunga- 
low. 

Other neighbors thought the 
Good children themselves were 
responsible. Particularly suspect 
were the holes in the walls, all 
about three to four feet above the 
floor and exactly matching the

"Few phenomena are more fantastic

high heels on a pair of Mother's 
shoes the girls often played with. 
But the unexplained noises oc- 
curred when all four family 
members were under observa- 
tion; the girls were outside when 
the front inside window shat- 
tered while the outer thermal 
glass remained intact. 

Things got wilder after the 
window shattered. All of Mrs. 
Reardon's china leapt from the 
kitchen cupboard to the floor. The 
nightstand in her bedroom fell 
over with a crash when the fam- 
ily was all together in the living 
room . Then two living room 
chairs fell over and the sofa be- 
gan to shake — in plain view of 
the family. A mirror crashed to 
the floor and other furniture 
toppled while the terrified family 
screamed for help. 

Father Dale Melczek of St. 
Christine Church was called and 
he blessed the house but decided 
the distraught family should 
move out. They did so, vowing 
not to return until the mystery 
was solved.

TN WESTERN Iran a shallow

valley which cleaves the high 
mountains of Kurdistan. On the 
banks of this river a large mound 
of earth some hundred feet high 
covers almost 35 acres. Most 
passersby would take it to be 


cupation in the whole area. When 
I first set eyes on this mound in 
1961 I could not resist taking 
a closer look. Even a cursory 
glance at the small collection 
of bits and pieces of pottery 
gathered from the surface of the 
mound was enough to show that

barren, monumental landscape. 
Probably their eyes would travel 
on and upward to snowcapped 
Mount Alvand rising 14,000 feet 
in the background and stretching 
out across the horizon. A 35-acre 
bump on the landscape does not 
loom large in this setting. 

Yet my archaeologist's training

me this was one of the largest

make this pile of earth and rubble

handful of sherds proved that 
human occupation at this site 
had begun perhaps as early as 
6000 B.C. and had lasted until 
the Seventh or Sixth Century 
B.C.

of ancient occupation at Godin — 
the one we call, in our typically

Period II. 

Period II dates to the Seventh 
and Sixth Centuries B.C. In the 


Seventh Century the most im- 
portant political and military 
power in this part of the Near 
East was Assyria. The Assyrians, 
whose homeland lay along the 
Tigris River in northern Meso- 
potamia, had forged in blood an 
empire which controlled, along 
with much of western Asia, most 
of the mountain areas east of 
Assyria proper in which is now 
western Iran. To secure those 
neighboring highlands the As- 
syrians had fought with Urartians, 
Mannaeans, Ellipians, Elamites, 
Kassites and many other local

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

T. CUYLER YOUNG. JR., was 
born in Resht, Iran, to American 
parents. He received a B.A. in 
Near Eastern Studies from Prince-

in Oriental Studies from the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania (Philadel- 
phia) in 1963.

peoples. By the late Seventh Cen- 
tury, however, things were com- 
ing a little unglued. 

For several hundred years, per- 
haps as early at 1200 B.C., a 
people known as the Medes had 
occupied the lands still farther to 
the east, beyond the effective 
control of the Assyrians. We 
know little of the Medes and 
most of their history remains 
cloaked in myth and legend. 
They probably entered the Iran- 
ian plateau from the east and 
moved slowly westward until 
they came up against the orga- 
nized power of Assyria. By the 
Ninth Century B.C. they appear 
in the Assyrian written records 
as one of the groups to the east. 
Then increasingly during the 
Eighth and Seventh Centuries, 
Assyrian military reports men- 
tion the warlike Medes and the 
storming of fortified Median 
castles and outposts on the bor- 
ders of the empire. Heretofore 
our understanding of such Me- 
dian forts and settlements has 
been based on scanty written de- 
scriptions augmented by a few 
reliefs showing the Assyrian 
army in action (Fig. 1). But now 
the excavation of Period II at 
Godin Tepe has laid bare the ac- 
tual remains of one of these 
Median strongholds. 

In point of fact, the Assyrians 
never did capture the Median 
castle at Godin Tepe. It was big 


enough, strong enough and ap- 
parently far enough outside the 
range of Assyria's full might to 
survive intact and eventually to 
be peaceably abandoned — for 
reasons that remain obscure. 
Big it certainly was — the sec-

ond largest building excavated in 
Iran to date. (The largest is the 
Treasury at Persepolis.) Larger 
than a modern football field, this 
single structure functioned as a 
fort, as the private residence of 



the local Median ruler and as his 
seat of public business — in sum, 
a fortified palace. Of course the 
building was constructed in sev- 
eral parts over a long period of 
time but looking at its finished

plan (Fig. 2) we can see at once 
its function as a fortification. The 
north wall, perched on the very 
lip of the mound some 80 feet 
above the river (pictured on 
page 37) , has five large towers 
each about 30 feet square, with 



alternating bastions and recess- 
es. Vertical arrow slots can be 
seen in the center of each bastion 
and in the recesses. The wall it- 
self is about nine feet thick — 
ample protection in the event of 
attack. 

At the west end of the build- 
ing south of the fortification wall 
are two large rooms which orig- 
inally were columned audience 
halls. Their walls are poorly pre- 
served but from what remains it 
is possible to establish the size 
of the rooms. The westernmost 
hall is the smaller and probably 
was used by the Median ruler for 
semiprivate audience or day to 
day business. The larger col- 
umned hall — at least 85 feet 
long and 75 feet wide — is more 
imposing. The whole of its south-

ern wall is eroded but the three 
extant walls are fronted by mud- 
brick benches on which the visit- 
ing dignitaries sat when the king 
held formal court. Along the 
north wall is a special "throne" 
seat where the ruler (or khan, as 
he would be called in Iran today) 
sat, warmed by the fire blazing 
on the raised brick hearth in 
front of him. 

The roof of this huge room was 
supported by 30 wooden columns, 
probably the trunks of large 
poplar trees, set on roughly 
shaped stone bases and arranged 
in five rows of six columns (Fig. 
3). The roof was perhaps 16 feet 
above the floor and would have 
been made of reed matting, 
branches and mud. This room 
with its forest of columns is the 
first archaeological evidence we 
have that the Medes built col- 
umned halls in the same manner 
their cousins the Persians did a 
little later, at such sites as Per- 
sepolis (See "Parsa: Seat of the 
Achaemenid Kings" May 1972

TSTHILE official and private 
W business was conducted in 
the west wing the khan's family 
and retainers probably went 
about their less weighty affairs 
in the central section of the pal- 
ace where our current plan (Fig. 
2) shows only a jumble of re- 
built walls; a fully coherent plan 
will emerge only after further 
excavation. It is clear, however, 
that the private apartments (bed- 
rooms, sitting rooms, perhaps the 
dining room) were on a second 


story over this section. Remark- 
ably, we managed to find the 
lower six treads of the original 
mud-brick staircase which led to 
that upper level (Fig. 4). Here 
the ladies of the house gathered 
(we may assume our Median 
prince had more than one wife) 
where they could best have been 
protected in the event of a suc- 
cessful Assyrian attack. 

Yet the Assyrians (the officers, 
at least) would have been too 
hardheaded to have given their 
first attention to the harem. 
Rather they would have looted 
the easternmost wing of the forti- 
fied palace. Here, where parts of 
the mud-brick walls still stand 
to a height of over 11 feet, we 
have uncovered two rows of six 
magazines — large storage rooms 
— in which the Median khan laid 


THE PALACE OF A MEDIAN KING

away his wealth. The Assyrians, 
sound economists that they were, 
would have put first things first 
and looted goods before women. 
An open corridor on each side of 
a central dividing wall gave ac- 
cess to these rooms (Fig. 5). 

One wall is so well preserved 
that we found a door actually in- 
tact up to and above its lintel 
(Fig. 6). The door is very small; 
an ordinary size person practi- 
cally must double up to pass 
through. But one still can see in 
the smoothed, rounded mud brick 
that the garments of those who 
passed through the door rubbed 
against the frame and wore it 
away. 

Some evidence suggests these 
magazines were not really store- 
rooms in the usual sense. They 
may have held grain. Wheat and 
barley would have been the most 
important cash crops in the 
khan's territory (aside from ani- 
mals such as horses, sheep and 
goats). The grain may have been 
poured into these bin-like rooms 
through a hole in the roof, then 
shoveled out through the small 
doors as needed. Certainly this 
theory would explain the im- 
practical size of the doors. By 
rough estimate, if these rooms 
really were used as silos, alto- 
gether they would have held 
about 36,000 bushels of grain. 
This figure only confirms what 
the grandeur of the columned 


audience hall already suggests: 
our Median khan was a very 
wealthy prince who must have 
controlled a large territory. 

"Would that he had left behind 
a little more of that wealth for 
us to find. Instead, it looks as if 
he sent his servants back to the 
abandoned building to sweep it 
out just once more before mov- 
ing on to wherever he and his 
household went. In short, the 
building is very clean and we 
have found little evidence of the 
portable goods which once gave 
comfort and color to life in the 
palace. All we have is a couple 
of bronze fibulae (safety pins for 
holding a loose cloak at the 
shoulder) , a stone bowl, frag- 
ments of a carved bone comb to 
be worn in a bun at the back of 
the head (Spanish dancer-style), 
one or two arrowheads, the rusted 
fragments of an iron spear, bone 
spatulas and of course a great 
deal of broken pottery (Fig. 7). 

The sherds from the finer pot- 
tery vessels give us some idea 
of how elegant life may have 
been at Godin in the Seventh 
Century B.C. Some of the vessels 
were almost eggshell-thin, show- 
ing the potter's mastery of his 
clays. Others allow us to recon- 
struct some very graceful shapes: 
bowls with fine turned rims 
which almost certainly are copies 
of finer vessels in stone and 
metal, tall fruit stands on pedes-

tals and elegant two-handled 
drinking goblets. Our khan set a 
fine table. 

I ALREADY have remarked on 
the mystery, probably in- 
soluble, of the peaceful abandon- 
ment of this fortified palace, for 
Period II at Godin represents the 
final occupation of the mound 
after some 6000 years. Often the 
archaeological record itself pro- 
vides some reasonable ex- 
planation : earthquake, military 
destruction, the collapse of the 
local water supply, a marked de- 
cline in the fertility of the sur- 
rounding countryside, and so 
forth. Yet in this instance none 
of these circumstances fits the 
facts. One possible explanation 
is suggested by what we know of 
late Assyrian and early Median 
history. 

The Modes always had been a 
politically fragmented people, di- 
vided into warring tribal groups, 
unable to band together for united 
action in a common cause or 
against a common foe. Had they 
been able to act together they 
probably would have been more 
of a threat to Assyria earlier in 
their history. As it was, these 
newcomers from the east were a 
very real danger to the Assyrians 
throughout the Eighth and 
Seventh Centuries B.C. After 
about 650 B.C., so our written 
sources tell us, the Medes, allied 


with other western Iranian peo- 
ples, seem to have accelerated 
the pressure on Assyria. Why? 

Herodotus, the Greek Father of 
History, writing many years af- 
ter the event, reports that some- 
time in the Seventh Century a 
king arose in Media who recog- 
nized the inherent weaknesses of 
the diffuse political structure in 
his land. And more important, he 
was able to do something about 
it. Noted for his ability to dis- 
pense true justice, Deioces, whom 
we might call a Median Solomon, 
gathered the tribes together and 
welded them into a unified king- 
dom. This unity, combined with 
military reform in armament 
and tactics, was continued under 
Deioces' heirs and enabled the 
Medes to challenge the Assyrians 
for political and military su- 
premacy in the Near East. 

Great empires like that of As- 
syria die slowly, however. It was 
a long struggle from the birth of 
Median unity in the Seventh 
Century to the final conquest of 
Nineveh, the Assyrian capital, in 
612 B.C. With that conquest the 
Medes suddenly emerged from 
the obscurity of their mountains 
onto the plateau of international 
power. They divided the Assyrian 
Empire with their allies, the 
Babylonians, and entered into a 
four-cornered balance of Near 
Eastern power with Egypt, Lydia 
and Babylonia. As a symbol of 


THE PALACE OF A MEDIAN KING 


45 


Median unity Deioces had estab- 
lished Ecbatana (modern Hama- 
dan) as the capital of his king- 
dom. By the time of Astyages, 
Deioces' third heir who reigned 
from 584 to 550 B.C., Hamadan 
— which lies to the east of Godin 
Tepe a day's ride by horse across 
Mount Alvand — had become one 
of the four key cities of the Near 
Eastern world. 

While all this was going on a 
succession of Median khans or 
tribal leaders at Godin continued 
to hold court in the great col- 
umned hall and to gather wealth 
in the granaries. The establish- 
ment of central Median author- 
ity and the slow retreat of the 
Assyrians from the mountains 
down to the Mesopotamian plains 
meant that the great fortifica- 
tion wall could be allowed to fall 
into disrepair. There was no 
longer any real reason to fortify 
against the Assyrians who now 
were far away and held at bay 
by the king's troops. 

As we dig today we find that 
the bastions were allowed to 
fall into disrepair long before 
the building was abandoned. 
Trash accumulated against the 
outer walls to the point where 
the lower parts of the arrow 
slots were blocked and useless. 
And the latest additions to the 
building had outside walls that 
were merely formally fortified, 
that never would have kept an 


attacking Assyrian commander 
awake five minutes past his bed- 
time. 

Thus in the remains of this 
building it seems we can trace 
the gradual establishment of 
true security throughout the 
Median countryside under a cen- 
tral government. It seems ob- 
vious that central authority slow- 
ly grew in strength to a point 
where the old enemy Assyria 
was no longer a threat to west- 
ern Iran and centralization ob- 
viated the need to fortify against 
rival Median tribes. Often the 
dissolution of an ancient society 
or city can be traced to its fall- 
ing on bad times. But Godin 
Tepe seems to have been aban- 
doned for the opposite reason, 
the good times which were 
Deioces' heritage to the Medes. 

The ever-increasing impor- 
tance of Hamadan and the cen- 
tralization of Median political 
power surely contributed to the 
final abandonment of this mon- 
umental building. We know the 
khan of Godin was wealthy and 
we may suppose that he was 
powerful. If the historical trend 
of the times was to concentrate 
power and wealth in the Median 
capital,* then perhaps our khan 

•In similar circumstances Louis XIV 
changed the character of the French 
nobility from a class of grand seniors 
who maintained potentially independent 
power bases in the countryside into a 
collection of rank- and favor-seekers 
who clustered about the Sun King at 
Versailles.

reached the conclusion that the 
future lay in the city, not on his 
country estate. 

It is all conjecture of course, 
but possibly our last khan of 
Godin decided to close his coun- 
try home and move to Hamadan 
simply because the political and 
military situation had altered in 
such a way as to make the 
capital the best place to be. 

FINALLY abandoned, the pal- 
ace of Godin in what we call 
Period II slowly decayed and 
eroded in the snow and rains. 
Circumstances, however we may 
read them at this historical dis- 
tance, certainly had changed 
radically, for Godin Tepe never 
was occupied again. Wherever 
the center of population may 
have been in this valley for the 
next few centuries, for the first 
time in 6000 years it was not at 
Godin. In time all visible trace 
of our khans and their palace, 
like the deposits left at the site 
by their predecessors of earlier 
milennia, was covered over. 


Eventually the inhabitants of 
the comparatively modern vil- 
lage located about a half mile 
away from the site turned the 
southern flank of the ancient 
mound into their cemetery. Still 
more recently the modern gov- 
ernment sliced a dirt road for 
auto traffic along the base of the 
mound and an enterprising local 
restaurateur built a small tea- 
house beside that road over the 
remains of his ancestors. It was 
there my companion from the 
Archaeological Service of Iran 
and I stopped to refresh our- 
selves with scalding tea and 
cool watermelon after collecting 
sherds in the autumn of 1961. 

Excavations since have shown 
us something of what was then 
unknown because it still lay un- 
der the ground. Now the mys- 
teries of Godin are less a ques- 
tion of what is there and more 
a question of how to read and 
understand what we have found. 

Here is the fortified palace of 
a Median khan. But how to con- 
jure up the khan?

But Brian Rua's prediction of 
a curse to befall Achill Island 
was no imagining — although 
two and a half centuries passed 
before its fulfillment.

FATE 


Brian Rua O Carrabine was 
born near Inver on the stark 
moors of Mayo early in the 17th 
Century. Because he showed 
kindness to a poor woman in 
1648, he is said to have received 
the gift of second sight. From 
then until his death he prophe- 
sied many things, including the 
great famine of the 1840's, the 
advent of the telegraph and oth- 
er events which occurred cen- 
turies later. His prophesies were 
transmitted orally until they 
were collected by Michael O'- 
Tiomanaidhe and published by 
M. H. Gill in 1906. 

One of Brian Rua's strangest 
premonitions concerned a rail- 
road to be constructed on Achill 
Island. Sometimes the curse that 
befell the railroad is credited to 
an old woman dispossessed by its 
construction but Brian Rua 
seems to have a stronger and 
earlier claim to the tale. 

Achill Island, 57 square miles 
in area, extends across the north- 
ern perimeter of beautiful Clew 
Bay. It is Ireland's largest is- 
land, shaped like an inverted 
' 'L" and bridge-bound to the 
mainland. About 6,000 persons 
now live there, subsisting by 
grazing livestock, fishing for 
shark (and other less glamorous 
species), cottage industries and 
on tourism. The cliff scenery is 
spectacular and the grim heath- 
er-laced bog land has its own 


fey mood. The Achill Islanders 
know some prosperity now but in 
centuries past they were among 
the poorest of those dispossessed 
Irish who were driven to the 
"stony places" by their English 
conquerors. Even today the faces 
of the landscape and the people 
recall these deprivations. 

But a pub is always and every- 
where a pleasant place. In such 
a snug at Westport I first heard 
about Achill Island railroad. I've 
heard it often since — from 
coach drivers, hotel owners, 
newsmen and booksellers. But I 
heard it first from two garru- 
lous companions in the bar at the 
Railway Hotel. We were seated 
near the window that fronts the 
Mall and I guess the tale cost me 
a couple of pints — but it was 
worth it. They traded sentences, 
the two of them, piecing together 
the railroad's haunted history. 

O Carrabine, they told me, had 
foretold the coming of the rail- 
road which he called "flaming 
carriages on iron wheels." He 
saw one of them linking Achill 
Island to mainland Mayo but he 
warned that "the first and the 
last passengers of this railroad 
will be corpses." Before his 
dire prediction became reality 
200 years would have elapsed. 

Robert Worthington, an experi- 
enced Dublin builder, began the 
spur line, setting a completion 
date for the summer of 1894. It

would tie Achill to Westport via 
Newport. 

Now the old woman enters the 
tale — as a dispossessed house- 
holder. Railroad beds require 
the purchase of property and 
sometimes the exercise of emi- 
nent domain. Whether it's in the 
interest of today's Interstate 
Highway system, urban renewal 
or a remote railroad, disposses- 
sion brings about protest. One 
protestor was this old lady who 
lived alone on the edge of a bog 
astride the proposed right-of-way. 
For countless years her family 
had held this forsaken estate and 
she resolved not to abandon it. 
All attempts at negotiation went 
unheard. 

Finally the builder himself, ac- 
companied by lawmen, physical- 
ly dispossessed the old woman, 
carrying her away bodily from 
the worn thatched cottage. In her 
anger and frustration she cursed 
her tormentors. 

The inventiveness and effec- 
tiveness of Irish curses are fa- 
mous. You'll hear phrases like, 
"Six eggs to you and half a dozen 
of them rotten!" Or "The curse 
of Cromwell on you," "High 
hanging to you" or "Sweet bad 
luck to you!" 

The irate crone was more speci- 
fic. "Take me then," she cried, 
"but I put this curse on you. 
This line shall never prosper. 
And this more. The first passen- 


gers will be corpses and also 
the last." 

These words, attributed to the 
old lady, more properly belong 
to O Carradine. He was ahead of 
her by 200 years. 

Even before the Achill line of- 
ficially opened the first part of 
the prophecy was fulfilled. On 
June 14, 1894, 32 migrant work- 
ers left Achill in a small boat 
headed for Westport. There they 
would take a larger vessel and 
sail to the potato fields of Scot- 
land. Their tiny vessel capsized 
— some say because they all 
rushed to one side to get a 
glimpse of a larger ship round- 
ing the 800-foot-high Minaun 
Cliffs. Soon men, women and 
children were thrashing about 
in the rough waters. None sur- 
vived. 

Thirty bodies were recovered 
from the rocky coast around 
Westport while the authorities 
puzzled about how to return 
them to Achill. The railroad, 
although not officially open, pro- 
vided the solution. The bodies 
were moved to Newport in car- 
riages on the regular line and 
from there a small engine pulled 
the macabre procession along 
the spur line. 

Achill Islanders had cause to 
remember the prophecy: "And 
the first passengers shall be 
corpses." 

Brian Rua — or the irate old 


Beautiful Clew Bay lies on southern perimeter of Achill Island, Ireland's largest. 


woman — was right on another 
count. The Achill Island railroad 
never prospered. In December 
1934 it was closed to passenger 
traffic, reopened briefly in April 
1936, then closed for good early 
the next year. It seemed that 
the last part of the accursed tale 
would not be realized. 

Then, on September 16, 1937, 
10 young Achill Islanders who 
had gone to Kirkintilloch, Scot- 
land, to harvest potatoes were 
burned to death in a barn fire; 
they had been locked in by their 
overseers. The bodies were trans- 
ported from Glasgow to Dublin 


but the task of getting them to 
Achill remained. Someone sug- 
gested the dormant railroad. 

For 60 pounds sterling (in 
those days, about $240.00) the 
bereaved relatives chartered a 
train from the Great Southern 
Railway and on September 19, 
1937, the bodies reached Achill. 

"And the last load shall be 
corpses!" 

The tracks are mostly gone 
now but you can drive out to

FRENCH TO 
By Rho 

ON APRIL 27. 1971, the well- 
known French publication 
L'Aurore started a detailed doc- 
umentary report on unidentified 
flying objects with the news 
that the famous Gendarmerie 
National, the French elite na- 
tional police force, would in- 
vestigate all future UFO re- 
ports. "The gendarmes are 
convinced there is something to 
the flying saucers," begins the 
report. "They are unwilling to 
accept UFOs as products of 
fantasy, optical illusions, visions 
or hallucinations of sick or 
drunk people. . . These un- 
known phenomena of the sky 
are considered very seriously. 
An elite corps does not waste its 
time with an investigation of 
things which do not exist." 

The investigating team will be 
headed by Charles Garreau, one 
of France's best known UFO 
investigators, and Captain Kpr- 
vendal of the Gendarmerie. The 
official police journal of the 
Gendarmerie states that in the 
United States pilots who report 
UFOs to the public face fines 
up to $10,000 and 10 years in 
prison. "Why so many precau- 
tions for something that does 
not exist?" the journal asks. 

France has two well-docu- 
mented landing reports. On July 
1, 1965, a farmer near Valensoie, 


STUDY UFOs 
Sigma 

Haute Provence, watched a 
strange object with a metal hull 
and six landing gears land only 
about 30 meters (about 100 feet) 
away from where he was stand- 
ing. Police interviewed the wit- 
nesses and established the reality 
of the landing gear impressions 
in the soil. A second very similar 
landing of the same type of 
object occurred on May 1, 1967, 
near Marliens, Cote d'Or. Here 
too landing gear impressions 
were found. "It is useless to at- 
tempt to close both eyes and 
merely make fun of such facts," 
states the police journal. 

Police reports must Include 
type of noise emanating from 
the UFO, description of oc- 
cupants with special emphasis 
on complexion and equipment 
and effects on animals, plants 
and soil near the landing site. 
Soil samples are to by shipped 
to the closest agricultural lab- 
oratory and the site tested for 
radioactivity as compared with 
a control location about 100 
meters away. Further instruc- 
tions call for the taking of in- 
frared photos from a helicopter 
10 meters above the landing 
location. Most noteworthy of all 
is the official directive to re- 
frain from all application of 
force in dealing with UFO oc- 
cupants.

Priceless Treasure 

Rare and remarkably preserved artifacts will 
provide new information about life in China 2,000 years ago. 

By David Techter 


ENDING THE blackout on 
archaeological news that 
prevailed during China's recent 
"Cultural Revolution" Com- 
munist China has published sev- 
eral lavishly-illustrated volumes 
describing archaeological prog- 
ress during the last several 
years. Most striking of all the 
recent finds are three 2,000-year- 
old tombs whose importance 


archaeologists already are com- 
paring with that of King Tut- 
Ankh-Amen in Egypt. All three 
date to the Former or Western 
Han Dynasty, rulers of China 
from 202 B.C. to Six A.D. 

In the summer of 1968 soldiers 
from the People's Liberation 
Army were searching for caves 
in Ling-shan Hill, west of the 
town of Manch'eng and south-

west of Peking. At the base of 
the cliff the soldiers found piles 
of rubble showing toolmarks. 
They investigated the limestone 
cliff and discovered the entrance 
to a tomb which had been cut 
straight back, into the cliff. The 
entrance had been sealed by- 
pouring molten iron between two 
parallel brick walls, thus form- 
ing a wall of iron. The army 
notified archaeological authori- 
ties who supervised the dyna- 
miting of the wall. A short time 
later another, similar tomb was 
discovered 100 yards north of the 
first. 

The size of these tombs alone 
is impressive. The first measures 
approximately 150 feet by 100 
feet by 30 feet high and the sec- 
ond tomb is larger still. Chinese 
archaeologists estimate that 


When first unearthed in early 1972 the 
corpse of the unnamed wife of Li Chu 
Tseng, vizier prince of Changsha, was dis- 
covered wrapped in 20 layers of silk and 
half-submerged in red preservative fluid. 


Doctors at Human Medical College, Peking, 
examine body of Li Chu Tsang's wife, who 
was about 50 years old at death. Despite 
2,000 years of burial the corpse resembles 
body of newly-deceased individual.

even with modern tools it would 
take 100 men a full year to ex- 
cavate the mammoth openings. 
Both tombs are designed with a 
tunnel running back from an 
east entrance, with side cham- 
bers to the north and south, to a 
large central chamber. From 
this large central chamber still 
another tunnel leads to the burial 
chamber in the rear. Artifacts 
found within the first tomb identi- 
fied it as that of Liu Sheng who 
ruled the region from 154 B.C. 
until his death in 113 B.C. The 
somewhat larger second tomb to 
the north is that of his consort, 
Tou Wan. 

The side chamber on the south 
of Liu Sheng's tomb contained 
several chariots and remains of 
more than 10 horses. The north 
chamber contained several hun- 
dred ceramic containers, most of 
them originally filled with food 
and drink. The large central 
chamber was filled with bronze, 
ceramics, lacquered objects and 
statuary, while the burial cham- 
ber at the rear contained the 
prince's double coffin and the 
most valuable of all the grave 
goods. Artifacts in the tomb of 
the princess were much the 
same. 

Over 2800 objects in all were 
removed from the two tombs. 
Most of them display a high level 
of artistic technique and some 
are types never seen before. Ma-

terials include bronze, gold, sil- 
ver, iron, j ade, glass, lacquer 
ware, ceramics and textiles. 
Some of the lacquered objects 
give the date on which they were 
made and the names of the arti- 
sans. An impressive bronze in- 
cense burner from the prince's 
tomb is richly inlaid with gold to 
depict hunting scenes. A gilded 
bronze sculpture from the prin- 
cess's tomb is in the shape of a 


court lady holding a lamp. Her 
right arm leads the smoke from 
the lamp into her hollow body to 
avoid polluting the air. 

Of all the tomb treasures the 
most spectacular are the jade 
suits that covered the bodies. 
Rectangular pieces of polished 
jade are held together by gold 
wires passed through holes in the 
corners to make these suits. The 
prince's suit consists of 2690 jade

pieces; his wife's suit is made of 
2156 pieces. It would have taken 
even a skilled jade worker in 
Han times 10 years to complete 
one of these suits. Liu Sheng ap- 
parently believed the suits would 
preserve his and his wife's 
bodies forever but archaeologists 
found only handfuls of dust when 
the suits were opened. These 
suits now are on display in Pe- 
king's Forbidden City, where 
President Nixon saw them on his 
recent state visit. 

Last year in 1972 a third Han 
tomb was discovered in Chang- 
sha, some 400 miles north of 
Hong Kong. Although this tomb 
belonged to the wife of an in- 
significant local nobleman, its 
charcoal seal preserved the con- 
tents in a remarkable fashion. 
The tomb is identified tentatively 
as that of the unnamed first wife 
of Li Chu Tsang, vizier prince 
of Changsha, the capital city of 
Honan Province. The corpse of 
the woman, who was about 50 
years old when she died, was 
preserved so perfectly that Chi- 
nese archaeologists injected em- 
balming fluid to prevent deteri- 
oration and the 2, 000-year-old 
corpse acted like a recently de- 
ceased body. 

When it was found the corpse 
was wrapped in 20 layers of silk 
cloth — brocade, embroideries, 
damask and gauze — some high- 
ly ornamented and all well-pre- 


served. The body was half-sub- 
merged in a reddish fluid which 
presumably played an important 
role in its preservation. The in- 
ner coffin was covered by five 
outer coffins, fitted one within the 
other. Buried with the coffins 
were more than 1,000 artifacts of 
ceramic, wood, bamboo, lacquer 
ware and silk. A banquet table 
was laden with peaches, pears, 
melons, eggs, pickled vegetables, 
rice and a decoration of arbutus. 
One-hundred-and-twenty minia- 
ture wooden figures wearing silk 
clothes peopled the tomb, keep- 
ing the body company while 26 of 
these, representing singers and 
dancers, provided silent enter- 
tainment. 

Archaeologists are most ex- 
cited about the colored silk 
painting that covered the inner- 
most coffin. This perfectly pre- 
served painting is almost seven 
feet long and it is three feet wide 
at its widest point. Peking ex- 
perts consider it the most valuable 
piece of silk ever found and one 
of the few that have survived for 
so long. Its still dazzling colors 
depict successive scenes of the 
underworld, the earth and heav- 
en. Also portrayed on it is the 
mythical figure, Yi the Archer, 
who shot down nine out of 10 suns 
in the sky and thus made the 
earth habitable. British ambas- 
sador to Peking John Addis, an 
authority on Chinese art, calls 


ANCIENT CHINESE TOMBS 


57 


the tomb painting one of the 
most important discoveries in 
years and "very exciting. * ' 

Chinese archaeologists and 
historians already have begun the 
painstaking task of studying the 
wealth of material from the 
three Han tombs. Since among 
these objects are so many that 
rarely survive, new information 
on the arts and crafts of Han 
times and indirectly on the lives 
of the people will result from 


their examinations of the price- 
less tomb treasures. 

Chinese politicians, of course, 
have been quick to point out that 
the tomb treasures illustrate 
"the ruthless extravagance of 
the feudal ruling class and its 
ruthless exploitation of the labor- 
ing people." The Communist 
Party newspaper Jenmin Jih 
Pao gloated, "The great cre- 
ations by the laboring people are 
now returning to their hands." 


INDIAN RELICS IN PERIL 


A HOUSING development is 
threatening the ruins of an 
ancient Indian metropolis of a 
millenium ago, reports Charles 
Hillinger in the New York Post. 
R. R. Perkins, curator of the Lost 
City ruins near Overton, Nev., 
laments, "Unless we get some 
people in here soon with scien- 
tific skills, we could lose thou- 
sands of ancient Indian relics." 

Remains of Lost City are ap- 
proximately 50 miles northeast of 
the resort city of Las Vegas and 
extend for perhaps 30 miles 
along both banks of Muddy 
River, a tributary of the Colo- 
rado. Estimates are that 10,000 
to 15,000 people lived in the city 
which thrived from the time of 
Christ to about 800 A,D. Why 
the ancient settlement was aban- 
doned 1200 years ago remains a 
mystery. 

Perkins, 58, has worked ex- 
cavations at Lost City since 1924, 
when the site first was found by 
his father Fay Perkins and his 


uncle John Perkins. Apartment 
houses with as many as 100 
rooms have been unearthed and 
Perkins considers Lost City the 
ancestral home of the Hopi In- 
dians. "They were a highly ad- 
vanced people," he states. "We 
have found evidence of brush 
dams and irrigation systems. In 
addition to food crops the In- 
dians grew cotton. Nearby are 
the remains of a large salt mine 
where hundreds of stone picks 
and hammers used by prehistoric 
miners were found," 

Now the site is threatened by 
the Moapa Valley development. 
Many Las Vegas residents are 
buying up three- and four-acre 
sites and building ranch houses, 
thus converting Overton into a 
bedroom community for the re- 
sort city. Soon, Perkins fears, the 
housing development may cover 
over much of Lost City's build- 
ings, pottery, implements, beads, 
clay effigies, skeletons, clothing 
and weaponry. 


Now Janet could see everything 
clearly — the look of horror in 
the man's unseeing eyes, his 
mouth agape as if to scream. 

By Mercedes Colon 

PERT Manhattan secretary- 
Janet Falk never will forget 
the frightening dream she had 
on New Year's Eve 1959. She was 
10 years old and living with her 
parents Helen and William Falk 
in Jackson Heights, N.Y. Even 
today when she recounts the 
dream she feels the anguish she 
experienced that night. 

On the last day of 1959 several 
inches of snow had fallen. Janet 
spent the whole day eagerly an- 
ticipating an evening visit from 
her favorite cousin, Joey Falk, 
whom she hadn't seen for a long 
time. Joey was 12 years older 
than she but there always had 
been a warm bond of affection 
between them. His visits were 
something she looked forward to. 

Joey finally arrived with his 
friend, Larry Moss, and during 
the happy family dinner he told 
them of his and Larry's plans to 
go into business early in 1960. 
Because it was New Year's Eve 
Janet was allowed to stay up 
later than usual; not until 10:30 
P.M., after Joey had left, did she 
retire for the night. Exhausted 
by the excitement and the long 


day she fell asleep quickly and 
immediately began to dream. 

She seemed to be a passenger 
in the back seat of a large car, 
engulfed in darkness. Then slow- 
ly everything started to clear 
and, as if she were a spectator at 
a stage performance, she saw 
two men in front of her, one

Child's 

Dream of 
Death 

behind the steering wheel. Both 
men were peering intently 
ahead, trying to pierce the dark- 
ness. Gradually she became 
aware of lights flickering 
through the windows and the 
swish of passing automobiles — 
although she felt no movement. 
Then she could hear the two men 
talking. 

"It's so slippery I feel as if the 
car is trying to get away from 
me," said the man behind the 
wheel. His voice had a familiar 
ring but Janet couldn't place it. 
The man spoke softly and she 
could see only the back of his 
head silhouetted in the dark. 


58 



"Fog's getting thicker," his 
companion remarked. 

"Is that an intersection up 
ahead? Can you make it out?" 
asked the first voice. 

The man on the right leaned 
forward to peer through the 
windshield but his answer never 
came. The car had started to 
slow down but then suddenly 
skidded, smashing hard into the 
back of a car ahead. As the driv- 
er struggled with the steering 
wheel the car veered wildly, 
tires screeching, and with a 
great rending noise crashed 
against a pole. 

The left front door flew open 


and almost simultaneously the 
seat behind the wheel was va- 
cant. Then frightening sounds 
filled the air. The second man, 
his head flung back, screamed 
with pain. 

"My legs, my legs. I can't 
move my legs. I'm stuck. Oh, 
God! Help me," he cried loudly, 
thrashing from side to side in a 
vain effort to free himself. 

Janet now found herself stand- 
ing outside the car, still a specta- 
tor. Slowly she moved forward 
until she stood over the inert 
figure of the driver. He lay on 
the snow-covered ground a little 
distance from the car, his arms 


59

FATE 


outstretched and one leg twisted 
incongruously behind his body. 
Inexplicably in the pitch-dark 
night the scene seemed illumi- 
nated as if by a spotlight. Janet 
could see everything clearly — 
the look of horror in the man's 
unseeing eyes, his mouth agape 
as if in the middle of a cry. 

Then Janet screamed — again 
and again, as only a child can. 
It was cousin Joey she was 
staring at and she knew he was 
dead! 

When Janet's mother rushed 
into the room she found the child 
sitting up in bed, eyes tightly 
shut, still screaming. Janet 
leaned against her mother, sob- 
bing uncontrollably. 

"Mommy, Mommy, Joey's 
hurt. I think he's dead." 

"No, no, darling. You were 
having a nightmare," her moth- 
er soothed. "Joey was perfectly 
all right when he left here a little 
while ago. You were dreaming." 

"No, I wasn't," Janet insisted. 
"I saw it. I was there in the car 
with him. There was another 
man there too and he was 
screaming about his legs and 
Joey was on the ground and he 
wasn't moving." 


With her mother watching over 
her Janet finally went back to 
sleep, to toss nervously until 
morning. She had been up about 
an hour that New Year's Day 
when the telephone rang. Joey's 
sister Peggy, in a state of hyste- 
ria, was calling. It was hard to 
make out what she was saying 
but finally Janet's mother put 
the pieces together. 

Joey had been killed about 
midnight in an automobile acci- 
dent on his way home to Yon- 
kers. Peggy's description of the 
accident matched Janet's dream 
in every detail. The fatal acci- 
dent had occurred near an inter- 
section. On the slippery road Jo- 
ey's car had skidded into the car 
in front, veered off the road and 
crashed into a pole. Joey had 
been thrown from the car and in 
the fall his neck had been bro- 
ken. Larry Moss, the man with 
him, had been found in the car, 
his legs pinned in the wreckage. 

The accident had happened in 
real life exactly as Janet Falk 
had seen it in her dream. Was it 
actually a dream? Or in some 
mysterious way was Janet at the 
scene of the accident as it was 
happening?

THE DEVIL IN INDIANA 
By Michael B. Williams 
TN OCTOBER 1971, bored with 
A the drabness of city life, six 
friends and I went to spend a 
restful weekend in the country at 
a cottage near Stonehead, Brown 
County, Ind. We arrived in the 
late afternoon and set about pre- 
paring a delicious supper of baked 
beans and cornbread. After din- 
ner we gathered around the fire- 
place, planning a peaceful night 
of conversation. I casually began 
to read from a book I had brought 
on satanism and the subject soon 
captured our youthful imagina- 
tions. 

Some of the party decided to 
prepare an invitation for the 
white spirit of New Guinea fol- 
lowing the description in my 
book. We formed a triangle with 
several rocks and planted three 
sticks into the ground inside. Ac- 
cording to the book, if the sticks 
fell over at midnight the entity 
had arrived; if they did not we 
were safe. We then returned to 


the cabin to wait impatiently for 
midnight, when we slowly 
walked back outside to the trian- 
gle. Sure enough, the three sticks 
lay across each other on the 
ground ! 

Our success incited us to fur- 
ther experiments. Three of us 
prepared a satanic altar with 
candles and incense. Then I con- 
jured Lucifer from the gates of 
hell to send a messenger into our 
cabin. Nothing happened. To re- 
lease the energy necessary for

demonology we all sat in a circle 
and began to hum. Beginning 
with the lowest note we could 
reach we harmoniously went up 
the scale ending in an emotional 
burst and a bloodcurdling 
scream. If anyone had happened 
to be wandering through the for- 
est that night they surely would 
have fled in terror! 

After several such screams an 
uneasy silence fell and we began 
to regret our efforts. To ease our 
conscience we began to chant a 
Buddhist prayer several of the 
group had learned. We all felt 
better afterwards and a few 
dared to leave the cabin in order 
to fetch some water. 

Upon their return a huge 
crashing sound resounded from 
the cabin roof, shaking the entire 
structure. Three of the braver 
members decided to investigate 
the roof and reluctantly climbed 
onto the top while the rest of us 
stayed inside. Suddenly two 
more crashes were heard from 
the roof and my three friends 
leaped off in a mad dash, luckily 
escaping injury. We searched 
the woods but could find nothing 
to account for the uncanny 
crashes. 

A few of our party went to the 
valley below with a flashlight to 
search for any intruders who 
might be trying to scare us. 
When they returned they asked 
why we had shone a beam of 


light on them while they were 
below in the valley. Monty de- 
scribed it as a large circular 
beam which came from above 
them. But I pointed out that our 
only light was the flashlight in 
his hand. Now we were so scared 
we decided to have patrols — and 
a lot of good that did us! While 
Bruce was acting as sentry some- 
thing grabbed his stick and 
shoved him over the edge of a 
cliff. Luckily he fell on a ledge 
and was not hurt. Anyone who 
would attack a man as big as 
Bruce would have to be blind, an 
idiot or a demon. We all were 
inclined towards the third possi- 
bility. 

But nothing further happened. 
The next morning we cleared out 
as soon as we awoke, convinced 
that satanism is nothing for am- 
ateurs to dabble with. — Chester-

24-HOUR DEATH NOTICE 

By Toni Gabrlele 

ON THE night of September 7, 
1968, I had a very upsetting 
dream in which my grandfather 
Howard M. Noble died. Grand- 
father and I were very close and 
I spent the rest of the night try- 
ing to convince myself that it 
was only a dream. 

In the morning I came out into 
the kitchen where my mother 
was preparing a birthday dinner 
for my grandmother. She could

tell from my expression that I 
was upset and in response to her 
inquiry I related my dream with 
tears rolling down my cheeks. 

Around noon my grandparents 
arrived at our home in Fowler, 
Ohio, and we ate a hearty meal. 
I went out to the kitchen to serve 
the cake and Grandfather came 
to keep me company. I cut us 
both a piece and we sat alone in 
the kitchen eating and talking. 
He told me that when school 
ended he would take me on a trip 
to Mexico so I could try out my 
Spanish. As we sat there I 



Toni Gabriels 


thought of how much I loved him 
and prayed that my dream 
would not come true. 

Around 6:00 P.M. they decided 
to return to their home in War- 
ren, Ohio. I dreaded seeing them 
go for I had an aching feeling 
that I never would see my grand- 
father again. 


When they got home Grand- 
mother phoned us to tell us they 
had arrived safely. I began to 
think how foolish I had been to 
be upset by my dream. But 
about 11:00 o'clock that same 
night Grandmother called again. 
This time it was a reality: 
Grandfather had died. — Fowler,

A DOLLAR SAVED 

By Joseph S. Hufham 

IN JANUARY 1936 I was living 
in a three-room rented house 
on the west edge of Delco, N.C., 
with my wife Rhoda and two 
small youngsters to support. It 
was the middle of the great De- 
pression and things were so bad 
that a neighbor who had six chil- 
dren was working for 40 cents a 
day. We were trying to survive 
on a few articles I sold to news- 
papers but they brought in too 
little to squeeze by on. I had 
gone so far as to put out a line of 
steel traps in Big Branch Swamp 
that stretched out behind the 
house, hoping to catch some 
game to eke out our provisions. 

One particularly cold morning 
most of my traps lay underwater 
due to heavy rains but I deter- 
mined to check those on higher 
ground even though this meant a 
three-mile walk. Rhoda had a 
fire going in the backyard to boil 
water for washing the clothes. As 
I was about to leave she told me,

FATE 


"Take off that shirt and I'll wash 
it." I removed my khaki shirt, 
the best one I owned, and found 
another. I tossed the khaki shirt 
onto a pile of clothes on the back 
porch and headed off. 

I decided to go to the post 
office in Delco first. It was about 
time for a monthly check from 
the newspaper. It would amount 
to only three to five dollars at 
best but the kids would finish off 
the last of our groceries at lunch. 
If I didn't shop that day, there 
would be nothing left for supper. 

I walked the mile to the post 
office but there was no check 
waiting. In desperation I thought, 
"What on earth can I do? I don't 
have but one dollar in the world." 

At that point I nearly pan- 
icked. I realized with horror that 
my last dollar was in the pocket 
of the khaki shirt I'd left to be 
laundered. By now it was in the 
pot of boiling water or would be 
before I could reach home. My 
very last dollar was doomed! 

My only thought was to pray 
that the Lord would save my 
dollar somehow or find a re- 
placement for it. With a heavy 
heart I began to check the traps, 
praying the whole time. I tried to 
visualize my wife finding the dol- 
lar before the shirt went in the 
boiling pot but I knew she rarely 
checked my pockets. I had read 
that everything happens for the 
best and I tried to convince my- 


self that if my dollar was de- 
stroyed the Lord would provide 
another. I began to hope I'd find 
a raccoon in my trapline but my 
only reward for checking the line 
was stinging wind in my face. 
The bleak trees thrashed together 
as I walked on home. 

As I walked into the backyard 
I saw my wife standing at the pot 
punching down clothes with a 
stick. "Is my khaki shirt in that 
pot?" I asked. And then I saw it: 
the wind had blown it from off 
the top of the pile of clothes to 
one end of the porch! My pray- 
ers were answered. I had gained 
far more than my last dollar. I 
now had the faith to face all 
obstacles, knowing that come 
what may, "underneath are the 
everlasting arms." — Delco, N.C. 


RESCUE BY TELE PORT ATI ON 

By Dewey Schley Carroll 

IN AUGUST 1943 while vacation- 
ing in California I suddenly be- 
came aware that my nephew Ells- 
worth Carroll and a buddy of his 
were in grave danger. Ellsworth 
was serving in an army unit in- 
volved in the invasion of Sicily. 
In an instant I was teleported to 
a spot close to a foxhole in which 
Ellsworth and his buddy Ralph 
were huddling to dodge shrapnel. 
At once I entered the foxhole, 
grabbed the two young men and 
hauled them out. Ellsworth was 
about to remonstrate against my

dragging them from safety when 
the whine of a shell drew our at- 
tention back to the foxhole. The 
shell made a direct hit on their 
former shelter and both would 
have died instantly had they re- 
mained there. Then, as suddenly 
as I had teleported to Italy, I 
found myself back in California. 

In November 1945 Ellsworth 
returned from service and the

following month I traveled to his 
home in Cabool, Mo. After we 
had exchanged greetings Ells- 
worth's first question to me was: 
"Uncle, what battalion did you 
serve in during the invasion of 
Italy?" I replied that I had not 
served in Italy at all. "But, Un- 
cle, you were there," he insisted. 
"You pulled me and my buddy 
from a foxhole while we were in 
Sicily. If you hadn't we both 
would have been killed. I turned 
around to thank you but you al- 
ready had gone." 


To this day I have been unable 
to convince Ellsworth that I nev- 
er served with the army in Italy.

DOUBLE MIRACLE 

By Ron Paige 
as told to Gary J. Peterson 

ON APRIL 12, 1972, Ben Piea, 
Jim Aron and I left Homer, 
Alaska, on a 40-foot boat called 
Patriot to do some fishing in the 
Gulf of Alaska. None of us was 
familiar with the vessel and its 
owner, "Junior" Cross, was not 
aboard. This was its first voyage 
after it had been in a fire and 
repaired. We had passed Katch- 
emak Bay and entered the Gulf 
when the hydraulic steering sys- 
tem failed. 

We turned off the engines to 
make repairs and while we were 
doing so the water cooling system 
somehow clogged. A hose burst 
and water flooded the engine 
room knocking out both engines 
and shorting the batteries so that 
the electrical system failed. We 
had no power for rudder control 
or for the radio to call for help. 
We could do nothing but drift. 

By the next day, April 13, we 
had drifted 40 miles from the 
coast. We let our anchor line out 
to full length in the hope of snag- 
ging bottom. Soon the anchor did 
catch and checked our drift out 
to sea — but now a gale-force 
wind buffeted the boat, straining 


66 


FATE 


the anchor line. After two solid 
days of strong winds and heavy 
seas the anchor line snapped. We 
were adrift once more. 

About 4:30 A.M. on April 16 
the man on watch wakened the 
others to warn of impending dis- 
aster. The fury of the storm was 
driving the Patriot straight for 
Nuka Island whose sheer 500-foot 
cliffs towered only a few hundred 
yards ahead. We had no lifesav- 
ing equipment on board except 
life jackets but if we were thrown 
into the water its freezing tem- 
perature meant certain death. 
There seemed absolutely no hope. 
I fell on my knees and prayed as 
I never had prayed before while 
the wind drove the hapless ship 
closer and closer to destruction. 
Suddenly when the Patriot was 
within 30 feet of the cliffs it 
stopped dead, pivoted 180 degrees 
and began to move away from 
the cliffs despite the wind and 
the sea. There seemed no pos- 
sible explanation for this unless 
some unknown power had re- 
sponded to my prayers. We all 
three agreed that we had been 
saved by a "miracle." 

The next day, the storm having 
abated, we began to drift around 


Nuka Island towards the main- 
land. We found a long oar float- 
ing in the sea and used it to steer 
the craft around several jutting 
rocks. The following day we 
drifted onto Kenai Peninsula on 
the mainland, landing on Gore 
Point, the only sandy beach with- 
in 50 miles in either direction. 
At any other spot on the coast- 
line we would have been dashed 
against sheer cliffs or jagged 
rocks. A second time we had been 
spared! 

We scrawled a huge "S.O.S." in 
the sand and went back to the 
boat to await discovery by a pass- 
ing ship or plane. Three days 
passed with no sign of rescue. 
On the morning of the fourth day 
I stood alone on the deck reflect- 
ing on our double miracle, yet 
still anxious about being rescued. 
At this moment the dark clouds 
hiding the sun parted just enough 
to send a solitary sunbeam di- 
rectly at me like a spotlight. I 
knew then we would come 
through the ordeal without harm. 
Moments later two fishing vessels 
sighted us and notified the Coast 
Guard, which sent a helicopter 
to take us back to civilization. —

IN AN OLD cemetery in southern 
England, about 9:00 A.M. on 
Monday, July 12, 1971, a pale and 
perplexed verger hurried along a 
gravel path flanked by crumbling 
gravestones to report a disturb- 
ing discovery to his parish priest. 
After hearing what the verger 
had to say the priest decided the 
police should be called without 
delay. 

In swift response to the priest's 
telephone call a police officer ar- 
rived. He was led along the path 


It seems liltely amateur sorcer- 
ers chalked the mystic talismans 
— but what violent unseen force 
continued to guard the site? 

the verger had taken earlier that 
morning in making his routine 
inspection tour through the dis- 
used cemetery. His last inspec- 
tion had been at five o'clock the 
previous Friday evening, July 9, 
and he had found everything in 


68 


order. The disturbance could have 
occurred anytime during the 
weekend — more than likely dur- 
ing the hours of darkness, for per- 
sons who turn to graveyards for 
other than lawful purposes usu- 
ally don't do so in the light of 
day. 

The verger, the priest and the 
constable made their way through 
the isolated burial ground to a 
large hewn stone memorial. Com- 
memorating the dead of two world 
wars it towers over the vast 
stretches of open countryside 
which border the high burial 
ground on three sides. 

Chalked on the stone at the base 
of the memorial they found the 
two magical symbols which had 
so disturbed the verger. Whoever 


had drawn the symbols also had 
gone to considerable trouble to 
create an intricate layout in prep- 
aration for whatever ritual had 
been carried out. The nearby 
graves had not been touched but 
two urns had been moved from 
the graves where they belonged to 
be used as vessels in the clandes- 
tine ceremony. Both now stood 
against the base of the memorial 
in what appeared to be purpose- 
ful positions — one on either side 
of the smaller of the two circles. 

One urn contained the remains 
of a fire lighted with paper but 
the other gave no clue as to what 
its contents may have been. Be- 
tween the two circles lay an ash 
branch which must have played 
some part in the rites. 



70 


FATE 


The young constable took out 
pencil and notebook and made a 
rough but detailed sketch to aid 
him in making his report. 

The smaller of the two circles, 
both drawn in thick white chalk, 
was about six feet in diameter. 
Lettered outside its circumference 
were the words aer, fire, earth 
and water sited to the north, 
south, east "and west respectively. 
Within this circle was one of 
smaller diameter and in the space 
between the two were written the 
words gabriel and tetragrammer- 
ton. Within the inner circle, its 
points touching the circumfer- 
ence, was a six-pointed star 
formed by two overlapping tri- 
angles, their apexes pointing due 
east and west. 

The larger circle was far more 
elaborate. Inside the outer cir- 
cumference were three more cir- 
cles each equidistant from the 
other. In the spaces between 
them these words were printed in 
block letters : jehova, emanuel, 
tetragramaton, jehia, anasbona, 
erigon, messia, arphetok, jesse- 
mon, agia and eloxniadonay. Each 
word was separated from its 
neighbor by a vertical line. 

Neither the priest nor the verg- 
er could offer any suggestion as 
to who might have been responsi- 
ble for the drawings or for what 
purpose the ceremony might have 
been held. As far as they knew 
nothing like this ever had hap- 


pened in the area and they could 
make nothing of it. The constable 
found no signs of any attempt to 
enter the nearby church or to 
break into any of the graves — 
which would have led to a sus- 
picion of black magic. 

When the officer eventually left, 
his sketch finished and with notes 
on the small amount of informa- 
tion the priest and the verger 
were able to supply, he went 
straight to a nearby town to con- 
sult the curator of the museum 
there. The curator had more than 
average knowledge of witchcraft 
and the black arts and had many 
reference books on these subjects. 
After studying the sketch, read- 
ing the officer's notes and carry- 
ing out a little research, he gave 
his opinion. 

He believed the two chalked 
circles and their written contents 
had their origins in white magic 
or druidism. Therefore, he as- 
sured the officer, there was noth- 
ing particularly ominous about 
them, no matter how disturbing 
and undesirable they might ap- 
pear to the custodians of the buri- 
al ground. 

However, in the police officer's 
mind, other considerations might 
be more ominous, more threaten- 
ing to society than any magic 
mumbo jumbo, black or white. 
All too often magic circles and 
witches' covens — regarded right- 
ly or wrongly by police authori-

ties as otherwise harmless — 
were fronts for drug traffic and 
illicit sexual activity. 

The graveyard, although fairly 
isolated, was in easy traveling 
distance from one of England's 
largest universities. Unfortunate 
though it may be, the police view 
with suspicion such seats of learn- 
ing, for experience has shown 
them that it is among the young 
people that the drug traffic bur- 
geons. 

The officer had to make a num- 
ber of inquiries before he would 
be satisfied that the chalk draw- 
ings, the borrowed urns and the 
ash branch were as innocent as 
the museum's curator would have 
him believe. For a more accurate 
and permanent record of the 
scene he called on a police pho- 
tographer. 

• * * 

EARLY THAT same evening, 
45-year-old Constable Jim 
Fraser, the photographer as- 
signed to the job, arrived at the 
old cemetery. The path was not 
wide enough to allow him to drive 
his van up to the memorial so he 
had to manhandle his camera 
and other equipment along the 
gravel path to the spot where he 
could take the photographs he 
had been briefed to obtain. 

To Jim Fraser this was just 
another assignment. Admittedly, 
photographing mystical signs in 
a cemetery was different from 


photographing jimmy marks, 
crashed vehicles and prisoners* 
faces — but even so to him it was 
just a job of work. 

He studied the scene and de- 
cided the best angle for the pho- 
tographs would be with his cam- 
era facing east. This way all 
the writing within the smaller cir- 
cle would appear right side up. 
He extended and spread wide the 
legs of his tripod and locked 
them in position, making sure the 
ground beneath them was firm 
and level. Next he opened his case 
which contained camera, photo- 
graphic plates and accessories. 
Satisfied that the tripod was 
steady he fastened the camera to 
its platform and turned to take a 
plate from the case. When he 
turned back to the camera he 
found it lying face down on the 
ground, still firmly attached to 
the tripod which also lay on the 
ground, its legs extended and 
locked in position. 

A quick look was all he needed 
to learn that he would not be able 
to use that camera to photograph 
the scene. Its alloy body was 
twisted and the casing was frac- 
tured as if it had received a ter- 
rific sidelong blow. Remarkably, 
despite this extensive damage to 
what had been a substantial cam- 
era, the lens wasn't even scratch- 
ed. 

Jim tried to figure out what 
had made the camera fall with 


72 


FATE 


enough force to result in such 
damage. He was positive that the 
tripod itself was not faulty — and 
there was only a slight breeze, 
not of sufficient strength to un- 
balance the camera or topple the 
heavy tripod. 

Jim realized that if the pictures 
were to be taken while he had 
still a reasonable amount of nat- 
ural light he didn't have time to 
contemplate the damage to the 
camera. In his van he had his 
own 35mm semiautomatic camera 
loaded with enough film to meet 
his immediate requirements. He 
quickly packed the wreckage of 
the ill-fated camera into its case 
and carried it and the tripod 
back to the van on the roadway. 
Minutes later he retraced his 
steps to the memorial carrying 
his own camera at the ready. 

Finding a suitable position 
from which to take the shots he 
raised the viewfinder to his eye 
and started to focus the lens. 
When he had the chalked lines of 
the magical symbols showing 
sharp and clear in his viewfinder 
he prepared to trigger the shut- 
ter. Suddenly for no apparent 
reason the lines began to swim in 
and out of focus. 

Jim shook his head and blinked, 
thinking that some disturbance in 
his vision might be responsible. 
These measures had no effect and 
the swimming motion continued. 
Leaving his camera focused as it 


had been he pressed the shutter, 
taking a chance that the results 
would be passable. To his aston- 
ishment he couldn't trip the shut- 
ter. 

He advanced the film and tried 
again but the shutter would not 
respond. Its mechanism wa"S jam- 
med — although it had been work- 
ing perfectly when he had used it 
a few days earlier. 

On arriving at the war me- 
morial Jim Fraser had given no 
consideration whatever to the 
supernormal aspect of the sym- 
bols. Not that he didn't believe 
that supernormal powers existed 
and could be put to use by those 
who had the necessary knowledge 
and ability. However, he be- 
lieved these chalk-drawn circles 
had been prepared by amateurish 
dabblers as a prank. Now he had 
second thoughts. Could there be 
more to the symbols than he had 
imagined? Had some ritual per- 
formed there raised a powerful 
unseen force which remained at 
the scene after the celebrants dis- 
banded? Plagued by such terrify- 
ing possibilities he left the ceme- 
tery with all the speed he could 
muster. 

Back at the police station Fra- 
ser's colleagues noticed his anx- 
ious state. He was pale and shak- 
en, not at all his usual relaxed 
self. By the following morning, 
however, he had recovered suf- 
ficiently to return to the cemetery 


THE CAMERA-SHY PENTACLE 


73 


with another camera in an at- 
tempt to obtain the photographs 
as he had been assigned to do. 
The scene had not been disturbed 
and this time he had no difficulty 
in operating the camera. The 
photographs turned out as well as 
he could have hoped. 

# * * 

TO EXPLAIN this incident con- 
clusively is impossible but the 
facts certainly suggest that at the 
time Jim Fraser was making his 
first and second attempts to pho- 
tograph the circles some kind of 
supernormal influence had suffi- 
cient force to thwart his inten- 
tions by direct physical interfer- 
ence. 

Jim himself has no explanation. 
He can say only that he was not 
consciously aware of any malev- 
olent atmosphere in the ceme- 
tery when he arrived to take the 
photographs. Nor was he aware 
of any apprehension or fear with- 
in himself until the second cam- 
era failed to operate. Then, he 
admits, he was frightened and 


wanted only to get away as fast 
as he could. 

No one has come up with a logi- 
cal explanation of the crash of the 
first camera. I have seen and ex- 
amined its remains. Except for 
the undamaged lens it's a write- 
off. It looks as if it had received a 
heavy blow on the top right-hand 
front corner of the frame and it 
is damaged beyond economical 
repair. The manufacturers have 
stated they could supply a new 
camera (using the salvaged lens) 
for about £700. 

When Jim took his own 35mm 
semiautomatic camera for repair 
the shutter was found to be jam- 
med between l/250th and l/500th 
of a second — but no reason for 
the jam could be found. 

Is it possible to put this series 
of events down to a one-in-a-mil- 
lion combination of coincidences? 
Or had those unknown celebrants 
who secretly prepared and used 
the chalked circles achieved their 
purpose — whatever that might 
have been?

ASTRAL 
PROJECTION 
A Risky Practice? 

After having several spontaneous out-of-the-body experiences 
this author learned to control his projections. 

By D. Scolt Rogo 


A NUMBER of individuals in 
the history of psychic re- 
search have been gifted with the 
ability to achieve out-of-the-body 
experiences (OOBEs) at will. 
Autobiographies such as Sylvan 
Muldoon's The Projection of the 
Astral Body (written with Here- 
ward Carrington) and Oliver 
Fox's Astral Projection record 
some of these experiences. A 
number of authors have detailed 
methods by which they induce 
OOBEs and suggest others may 
do likewise but Fox and Muldoon 
give the fullest instructions. 

Fox tells the experimenter to 
relax, to be still, to concentrate 
on each part of his physical body 
and to will the "double" to re- 
lease itself from each successive 
point of concentration. He then 
suggests concentrating on the 
top of the skull where the "dou- 
ble" exits by way of an imagi- 
nary trapdoor which he terms 
the pineal door. 


Robert Crookall in his books, 
The Study and Practice of Astral 
Projection and More Astral Pro- 
jections, writes that a high per- 
centage of persons undergoing 
spontaneous OOBEs report the 
sensation of leaving the body 
through the head. Thus Fox's 
method seems to be based on 
good empirical observation. 

Sylvan Muldoon suggests sev- 
eral ways of inducing astral pro- 
jection. One method is to get the 
"double" to carry out an act that 
the physical organism cannot. 
He suggests the experimenter go 
to sleep thirsty or hungry and 
that the "double" may project in 
order to meet this physical need. 
He also suggests that the subject 
lie on his back during the experi- 
ment and that he must remain 
emotionally calm. 

Muldoon's most elaborate 
method is similar to Fox's use of 
willpower. He begins by breath- 
ing deeply. Next he projects all 


74 


thought to the top of his head 
and tries alternately to tense 
then relax his scalp muscles; to 
tense and relax his facial mus- 
cles, his neck muscles, his upper 
arms, etc., down through his en- 
tire body. Next the subject is to 
concentrate on his heart until his 
whole body feels the pulsations 
of that organ. Once this condition 
is reached the subject must 
learn to shift his attention and 
become aware of pulsations in 
any part of his body. 
After this skill is 
mastered comes the 
tricky matter of con- 
trolling the speed of 
the heartbeat. (My 
personal experience 
is that these exer- 
cises are not too 
difficult to master to 
a degree.) 

During the actual 
projection experi- 
ment the heartbeat must be con- 
centrated on, steadied and 
slowed. Muldoon believed that 
this practice, if mastered, would 
lead to an OOBE without con- 
scious willing; that is, rather 
than inducing a projection it al- 
lows one to take place. 

Another method Muldoon pro- 
poses is to stare at one's image 
in a mirror and try to convince 
the conscious mind that the mir- 
ror image is the real self and 
gradually fall asleep doing this 


exercise. He also outlines what 
he terms the "passive will" 
method which essentially is hyp- 
notizing the will into wishing to 
project at a specified time. 

In his book Muldoon also cites 
methods of inducing OOBEs used 
successfully by Prescott Hall. 
Muldoon, however, apparently 
missed the significant fact that 
these methods were given to Hall 
as "communications" through 
the mediumship of Mrs. Keeler

known volumes on astral projec- 
tion. Hall had two friends who 
claimed the ability of conscious 
proj ection and questioned Mrs. 
Keeler's controls on methods of 
producing the phenomenon. 

The Keeler communications 
mention a number of methods.

FATE 


One is to concentrate attention 
on mental images of light, then 
imagine oneself as a point float- 
ing in space. Various other im- 
ages can be used to induce 
OOBEs, including the image of 
swirling out of the body, images 
of cones, passing through a wa- 
terspout and passing through a 
hole in one side of a tank. Con- 
centrating on one's image in the 
mirror also is mentioned and 
Muldoon probably first consid- 
ered this technique after reading 
the Keeler data. This same data 
also mentions breathing tech- 
niques, especially those which 
involve holding the breath. 

Robert Crookall was so im- 
pressed by the Keeler material 
that he devoted his 1964 study, 
The Techniques of Astral Projec- 
tion, to comparing the communi- 
cations with spontaneous re- 
ports. These latter also record 
sensations such as swirling out of 
the body, projecting through a 
cone or into a pinpoint of light — 
all images given through Mrs. 
Keeler before anything was writ- 
ten about projection. Mrs. Kee- 
ler's communications also noted 
the "silver cord" connecting the 
"double" to the physical body 
long before this observation was 
published by Muldoon. 

A unique aspect of the Keeler 
material is a list of dietary regu- 
lations which the "communica- 
tors" claimed would be helpful 


in inducing OOBEs. These pro- 
hibited meat and nuts and sug- 
gested the diet consist mainly of 
fruit and vegetables, with car- 
rots, raw eggs and liquids being 
especially beneficial. 

Hall followed the suggestions 
from the Keeler material for six 
years and reported his experi- 
ences in the A.S.P.R. Journal in 
1918. Although he himself never 
was impressed by his own par- 
tial success, his records show 
such remarks as "freer from the 
body than before and able to 
move through it, especially hori- 
zontally" and "feeling of being 
drawn out of the body." Thus by 
following the Keeler communica- 
tions Hall seemingly did have 
marginal success. 

T FIRST ran across Hall's 
writings in 1965 and was in- 
trigued by the dietary regula- 
tions. They were easy to follow 
and not so vague as "projecting 
one's mind" or "will control." I 
had spent quite a lot of time 
trying different methods of in- 
ducing astral projection with 
very little success. I failed com- 
pletely when trying to follow 
Muldoon's techniques although I 
was able to achieve control of 
my heartbeat. 

Finally I decided to give up 
conscious attempts at projection 
but I did go on the diet 
prescribed through Mrs. Keeler, 


A RISKY PRACTICE?

although I must admit I cannot 
bear raw eggs and I did eat 
small amounts of meat. I had 
been on this diet for two weeks 
when one afternoon in August 
1965 I experienced an unexpected 
OOBE. I had arrived home feel- 
ing tired and I stretched out on 
my bed and turned cn the radio. 
I was dozing on and off when 
unexpectedly I had the peculiar 
sensation of being awake but 
feeling as if my body were fall- 
ing. Without quite realizing what 
was happening I turned onto my 
other side and noticed that my 
body was rigid. I felt as if it was 
pulsating and falling. Now real- 
izing an OOBE might be taking 
place I managed to flip onto my 
back. I concentrated on the feel- 
ing of falling and the next instant 
found myself staring at my own 
body. I turned around and my 
"double" swayed and fell to one 
side. I found myself moving to- 
wards the door. For an instant I 
blacked out and then found my- 
self back in my body, awake but 
with my pulse very slow. (I usu- 
ally have a very fast heart- 
beat.) 

A few weeks later the same 
experience recurred although 
this time the OOBE was oddly 
different and much more inter- 
esting. Again I had decided on 
an afternoon nap and shortly 
thereafter I felt those same pul- 
sating sensations. This time I 


suddenly found myself crouched 
on my knees beside the bed. I 
realized an OOBE had taken 
place and my one wish was to 
leave my bedroom. Immediately 
I was erect and moving towards 
the door. Everything looked hazy 
as it had in my other experience. 
The entire left side of my face 
felt crushed and my vision was 
obstructed. I moved toward my 
closed door, passed through it 
and went into the living room. 
Then abruptly I found myself 
awake on the bed. I feel the 
significant fact here was that I 
was sleeping on my left side with 
my face cushioned on my arm 
which was exerting some degree 
of pressure on the left side of my 
face and also obstructing my 
sight ! 

To this day I don't really know 
exactly how these OOBEs were 
achieved since I had been ex- 
perimenting with every method I 
came upon. However, at the time 
of these experiences I had 
ceased conscious experimenting 
so the OOBEs may have been 
due to self-suggestion, the di- 
etary regulations or all factors 
combined. Feeling that I had 
demonstrated to my own satis- 
faction that a projection can be 
induced I stopped experimenting 
altogether. I did not realize that 
my experiments somehow had 
affected me psychically and that 
from 1965 to 1968 I was to under- 


73 


FATE 


go several hundred partial pro- 
jections and a few full OOBEs. 
But more important I was able to 
devise a unique system all my 
own for inducing OOBEs. 
» # # 

SEVERAL MONTHS after my 
second OOBE, described 
above, I was lying in bed one 
evening half-awake when I be- 
came faintly aware of a mild 
rushing sound in the distance. 
This background sound grew un- 
til I heard it as an overpowering 
roaring in my ears. I tried to 
move and found myself catalep- 
tic. I exerted all my energy and 
managed to move my hand, 
which stopped the experience. 
This is a technique suggested by 
Sylvan Muldoon for breaking out 
of the cataleptic state that may 
precede or conclude an OOBE. A 
week later this experience was 
repeated during the night and 
this time, during my cataleptic 
state, I saw several white faces 
beside me. This is the only truly 
frightening experience I have 
had in the several years I have 
been investigating the psychic 
field. As soon as I could I stopped 
the experience and turned on a 
light which I left on for the rest 
of the night. 

I was aware of the technique 
mentioned by Fox and others of 
using the dream state as a meth- 
od of projecting. If, during the 
dream, one becomes aware that 


he is dreaming — this is often 
termed a "lucid dream" — then 
allegedly he can will himself to 
awaken and find himself project- 
ed. On several occasions I had 
lucid dreams but was not able to 
awaken into a projected state. It 
is interesting that my sponta- 
neous projections occurred not in 
the dream state but before sleep 
set in — during a borderline 
state between waking and sleep- 
ing. Many persons pass through 
this borderline or hypnogogic 
state before falling asleep and in 
this state they "dream" although 
actually they are awake. This 
hypnogogic state, akin to day- 
dreaming, is full of mental pic- 
tures and many psi experiences 
seem to occur during it. Muldoon 
suggested this state of conscious- 
ness might be used to induce 
projection but he did not elabo- 
rate on it. 

During this time I became 
aware that my hypnogogic state 
was very rich in images but 
these images were so fleeting 
that most of my conscious efforts 
to study them led to my awaking 
with a start. After further prac- 
tice I was able to extend the 
imagery for a few seconds before 
either waking or falling asleep 
and I then discovered the associ- 
ation between these hypnogogic 
images and my incipient projec- 
tions. During one of my most 
vivid experiences I was lying in 


A RISKY PRACTICE? 


7!) 


bed holding in my mind the im- 
age of driving an automobile 
very fast downhill. As I reached 
the bottom of the slope I was 
jolted into consciousness. Imme- 
diately I became aware that al- 
though I could see, my eyes still 
were closed. I was cataleptic and 
experiencing a falling sensation. 
I recognized this as an incipient 
projection and willed an OOBE 
to take place. For a second I had 
a sensation of extreme pressure 
and then was aware of an instant 
of great relief. For a few seconds 
I felt myself floating above my 
body but soon descended and 
woke to normal consciousness. 

A similar experience occurred 
a week later. I was taking a 
Sunday afternoon rest and dur- 
ing a hypnogogic state I imag- 
ined I was driving my car to- 
ward a freeway underpass. As I 
approached the underpass I be- 
came aware of an unpleasant 
sensation of heat and tried to 
awaken. To my surprise I found 
myself paralyzed, unable to stop 
the imagery. As I neared the 
underpass I became warmer and 
warmer until the heat became 
almost unbearable. When I 
reached the underpass the imag- 
ery and the heat dissipated but 
I found myself still cataleptic. 
Again I tried to induce an OOBE. 
I achieved a sensation of dual 
consciousness, of being in two 
bodies at the same time, but re- 


turned abruptly to normal con- 
sciousness before I could project. 

It would seem that my "driv- 
ing dreams" are similar to the 
"falling dreams" which astral 
projecters cite as examples of 
unconscious OOBEs. My realiza- 
tion that for me driving imagery 
and OOBEs are associated then 
led to a method whereby I could 
repeatedly produce OOBEs. 

During the hypnogogic state 
one evening I became aware of 
the sensation of driving along a 
narrow road. I intuitively felt 
that if I could sustain the image 
long enough to drive my car oj? 
the road and crash it this would 
throw me into a projected state. 
It worked. I crashed my mental 
automobile and found myself ful- 
ly conscious but paralyzed and 
experiencing a falling sensation. 
I relaxed and concentrated on 
these sensations and for a mo- 
ment became aware of being out 
of my body. Then I blacked out 
and was back in my body. 

Thus my method of controlling 
OOBEs is a result of controlling 
my hypnogogic images. The ac- 
tual procedure is rather simple 
although the techniques are 
tricky. First of all it is neces- 
sary to be aware of your own 
hypnogogic state (which most 
persons are not). Then you must 
learn to view this state panoram- 
ically without aborting it. Fin- 
ally you must learn to control 


80 


FATE 


and prolong the images and use 
them for your own purpose. In 
essence this technique is no 
different than the lucid dream 
technique, except that conscious- 
ness never is lost nor interrupted 
by the sleep stage. 

The key is to discover which of 
your hypnogogic images is re- 
lated to the OOBE and then 
learn to manipulate this image 
to shift your consciousness into 
the OOBE instead of the waking 
state. If you can learn to produce 
certain hypnogogic images the 
procedure becomes easier. Then 
to induce an OOBE you find the 
point where the image comes to 
a climax. In my own case my 
OOBE occurred at the specific 
point of crashing the car. 

It seems that during the hyp- 
nogogic state the consciousness 
is least dependent on the phys- 
iological mechanisms of the 
body. Since many OOBEs are 
reported as occurring on the 
verge of sleep, by controlling 
this state of consciousness one 
can more readily direct the 
OOBE than at any other time. 

I would not conclude this arti- 
cle without a word of warning. I 
share with Robert Crookall the 
belief that conscious experimen- 
tation with astral projection ac- 
tually is dangerous, not because 
of the possibility of "possession" 
or because it may cause death 
but because of very basic physi- 


ological and psychological haz- 
ards. For example, rhythmic 
breathing exercises that may fa- 
vor projection also can upset the 
blood pressure and put abnormal 
stress on the heart. Staring into 
a mirror can cause dissociation 
or even psychotic disorders. 
Conscious control of the heart- 
beat can backfire and throw the 
heart off its normal rhythm so 
that it beats sporadically, too 
quickly and completely out of 
control (as I can testify from 
unhappy personal experience) . 
Other techniques can affect the 
oxygen supply to the brain. I 
think these physical dangers 
should warn off most persons. 

My hypnogogic method is not 
for inducing so much as for con- 
trolling the OOBE. Learning to 
control the OOBE is not the same 
as trying to coerce it. The OOBE 
occurs normally during sleep, 
during illness and at near death. 
My own success with the tech- 
nique comes perhaps from my 
predisposition to the experience 
since I recall having OOBEs as a 
young child. If you have a natur- 
al history of this fascinating ex- 
perience, by all means cultivate 
the ability. This can lead to 
breakthroughs in our scientific 
study of the phenomenon. If not, 
I suggest would-be experimen- 
ters analyze their motivations 
for undertaking so risky a prac- 
tice. 


Old Jake 
Won't Leave the Moors . . . 

. . . and two young men embarked on a New Year's Eve 
caper have reason to be grateful. 
By William H. Hartley 


ON A COLD December day in 
1912 my friend Barney Hib- 
bard and I were sitting in a cafe 
in Manchester, England, my na- 
tive city, talking about*plans for 
New Year's Eve. We were young 
and adventurous and liked doing 
unusual things so after some dis- 
cussion we decided to skip the 
conventional parties and hike 
across the moors to Hayfield, 
something we often did in the 
summer. Little did we know what 
a winter hike held in store for us. 

The morning of December 31 
found us on the train heading 20 
miles east of Manchester to Glos- 
sop, our starting point. We ar- 
rived at noon and still had to 
hike seven miles to reach the 
Snake Inn on the edge of the 
moors. 

The heavy snow which had fall- 
en made our progress slow. It 
was quite late when we arrived 
at the inn and asked for dinner. 
The landlord led us to the dining 
room where a blazing fire on the 
hearth soon warmed our numb 
hands and feet. After a delicious 


meal of roast beef and Yorkshire 
pudding we lingered before the 
fire drinking coffee, reluctant to 
go out again into the bitter cold. 
By this time it was dark and the 
storm had worsened — and it was 
seven miles across the moors to 
Hayfield. 

I suggested to Barney that we 
remain at the inn for the night 
but he protested. "We started out 
to cross the moors. Let's do it." 

"Okay," I replied, "let's go." 

We left the warmth of the inn 
and crossed the road leading to 
the moors. After plodding along 
for about half an hour we realized 
the snow was obliterating the 
path. We had been over the trail 
many times in better weather 
and we knew the general direc- 
tion to follow but in this blizzard 
we easily could lose our bearings. 
The moors stretched for miles in 
every direction and there were 
few landmarks to go by. 

Whenever we went onto the 
moors at night we carried a 
folded newspaper so that if we 
lost our way we could light a fire 


81

to attract attention — if a wander- 
ing shepherd were nearby. Ac- 
cordingly we began to burn a 
paper, sheet by sheet. After what 
seemed ages but probably was 
only a moment or two we heard 
an eerie call coming from near 
the stone cottage where I be- 
lieved "Old Jake," a shepherd, 
had lived. I often had seen him 
near there with this flock. 

"Is everything all right, lads?" 
called the voice. 

"Yes," we called back, "but we 
would like directions to Hay- 
field." 

"Look for the trees, lads; look 
for the trees." 

"What trees do you mean, sir?" 

"The oaks, lads, the oaks, the 
o-a-k-s," came the hollow voice. 

Now we remembered the line of 
oaks along the path to the stone 
bridge at the entrance to Hay- 
field. We shouted our thanks and 
started on our way. A moment 
later Barney asked, "I say, Bill, 
was that Old Jake?" 

"It couldn't have been," I re- 
plied. "He died more than a year 
ago." 

"Well, it sure sounded like him. 
I wonder if he has come back to 
haunt the moors?" 

We turned to look for some sign 
of life but even in its snow- 
dimmed outline the dark cottage 
looked cold and desolate, ap- 
parently empty. We remembered 
the oaks were in line with the 


shepherd's cottage and tried to 
make our way to the first one. 
As the wind whipped the snow 
around us we had to link arms to 
stay together. We wound our 
scarves across our faces, leaving 
only our eyes bare to the sting- 
ing, biting wind. 

Finally we reached the first oak 
tree and stumbled on, searching 
for the second. As the snow fell 
faster and the wind became more 
severe we had trouble seeing 
each other, let alone locating the 
oaks. But when we wandered off 
course the eerie voice came 
again, "Here lads, the oaks, the 
oaks!" 

Shivering more than ever at 
the uncanny sound of the voice 
which seemed to be leading us 
we finally reached the second 
tree. We paused for a moment, 
relieved to know we were going 
in the right direction. We moved 
on very slowly. If we let go of 
each other or made a false step 
the moor and the storm could 
swallow us both. 

Suddenly we heard bells — bells 
from the church in Hayfield ring- 
ing in the New Year. We listened 
to that welcome sound for a few 
minutes then started toward the 
village, knowing that the bells 
would ring on through the night 
as is customary in England. We 
felt we safely could follow their 
pealing into Hayfield. 

We had gone only a few steps 


OLD JAKE WON'T LEAVE THE MOORS 


83 


when the voice called us back: 
"The oaks, lads, the oaks." We 
stopped in our tracks. 

"Is he trying to tell us some- 
thing, Bill?" Barney asked. 

"Remember the creek that 
runs through here? I'll bet the 
ice is thin and Old Jake is warn- 
ing us to stick close to the trees 
until we reach the stone bridge 
on the main road." 

Reluctantly we turned back to 
the row of trees and continued to 
make our way from oak to oak. 
Whenever we wandered from the 
path the eerie voice would call 
out. 

About three o'clock in the morn- 
ing we crossed the stone bridge 
and arrived at the Blue Boar Inn 
in Hayfield. We aroused the land- 
lord and asked for shelter until 
the early morning train back to 
Manchester. When we apologized 
for waking him, explaining that 
we had hiked across the moors 
from the Snake Inn, he replied, 
"In all this storm? You must be 
insane." 

"Well, the storm was a bit 
rough, ' ' I admitted, ' 'but the 


voice of a shepherd guided us in 
the right direction." 

"You mean Old Jake?" asked 
the innkeeper. "I've heard he 
haunts those moors but never had 
any proof of it." 

"He didn't say who he was but 
I guess it was Old Jake. He was 
the only one who dwelt on those 
moors." 

The innkeeper prepared hot 
toddies for us and we lingered be- 
fore his fireplace until it was 
time for the train. When we 
arrived at the small station 
the stationmaster was equally 
amazed that we had made it 
across the moors on such a 
stormy night. He laughed when 
we told him of the strange voice. 

"So Old Jake won't leave the 
moors, eh? Well, you're mighty 
lucky young men. I doubt if you 
could have made it alone." 

Our return to Manchester was 
uneventful but Barney and I had 
had enough excitement to last 
awhile. We agreed that more 
conventional pastimes on New 
Year's Eve might not be so bad 
after all.

7 tjf the 1800 J 

PART ONE: "No form of diri- 
gible or heavier-than-air machine 
was flying — or could fly — at this time." And yet . . . 

By Jerome Clark and Loren Coleman 


MARCH 26, 1880, was a quiet 
Friday night in tiny Galisteo 
Junction, N. Mex. (now the town 
of Lamy). The train from nearby 
Santa Fe had come and gone 
and the railroad agent, his day's 
work finished, routinely locked 
up the depot and set out with a 
couple of friends for a short 
walk. 

Suddenly they heard voices 
which seemed to be coming from 
the sky. The men looked up to 
see an object, "monstrous in 
size," rapidly approaching from 
the west, flying so low that ele- 
gantly-drawn characters could 
be discerned on the outside of the 
peculiar vehicle. Inside, the 


occupants, who numbered 10 or 
so and looked like ordinary hu- 
man beings, were laughing and 
shouting in an unfamiliar lan- 
guage and the men on the 
ground also heard music coming 
from the craft. The craft itself 
was "fish-shaped" —like a cigar 
with a tail — and it was driven 
by a huge "fan" or propeller. 

As it passed overhead one of 
the occupants tossed some ob- 
jects from the car. The depot 
agent and his friends recovered 
one item almost immediately, a 
beautiful flower with a slip of fine 
silk-like paper containing char- 
acters which reminded the men 
of designs they had seen on Jap-

Soon thereafter the aerial ma-

toward the east at high speed.

found a cup — one of the items

unable to locate in the darkness. 

"It is of very peculiar work- 
manship," the Santa Fe Daily 
New Mexican reported, "entirely 
different to anything used in this 
country." 

The depot agent took the cup 
and the flower and put them on 
display. Before the day was 


over, however, this physical evi- 
dence of the passage of the early 
unidentified object had vanished. 
In the evening a mysterious 
gentleman identified only as a 
"collector of curiosities" ap- 
peared in town, examined the 
finds, suggested they were Asiat- 
ic in origin and offered such a 
large sum of money for them 
that the agent had no choice but 
to accept. The "collector" 
scooped up his purchases and 
never was seen again. 

Of course the story of aviation 
does not begin on December 17, 
1903, the date of Orville Wright's 
12-second aerial hop at Kitty 
Hawk. Long before that scien- 
tists and inventors had struggled 
to unlock the secrets of powered 
flight and to build what an 1897 
issue of Scientific American call- 
ed the "true flying machine; that 
is, one which is hundreds of 
times heavier than the air upon 
which it rests, (and flies) by rea- 
son of its dynamic impact, and 
not by the aid of any balloon or 
gasbag whatsoever." 

But nothing in the early his- 
tory of flight tells us what a huge 
airborne cigar was doing over 
New Mexico in 1880, especially 
as it "appeared to be entirely 
under the control of the oc- 
cupants and . . . guided by a 
large fan-like apparatus," and 
also could ascend with startling 
speed. Its "monstrous size" and

its propeller clearly indicate it 
was heavier than air, but such a 
flying machine didn't then exist 
according to British authority 
Charles H. Gibbs-Smith: "Speak- 
ing as an aeronautical historian 
who specializes in the periods 
before 1910, I can say with cer- 
tainty that the only airborne ve- 
hicles, carrying passengers, 
which could possibly have been 
seen anywhere in North America 
. . . were free-flying spherical 
balloons, and it is highly unlikely 
for these to be mistaken for any- 
thing else. No form of dirigible 
(i.e., a gasbag propelled by an 
airscrew) or heavier-than-air fly- 
ing machine was flying — or in- 
indeed could fly — at this time in 
America." 

NEVERTHELESS, mysterious 
"airships" were seen in 
many parts of the world in the 
last half of the 19th Century and 
the early years of the 20th. And 
plans for the construction of such 
craft were not unknown. 

In 1848 gold fever seized Amer- 
ica. On January 24 a workman 
discovered the precious metal in 
Sutter's millrace in California's 
Sacramento Valley. Within weeks 
the entire Pacific coast knew 
about it and a few months later 
"gold" was on the tongue of 
every easterner who ever dream- 
ed of easy fortune.

ever, was a problem, for the in- 
land parts of the young nation 
were largely unsettled. A unique 
solution — air travel — came from 
"R. Porter & Company," a firm 
which listed its address as Room 
40 of the Sun Building in New 
York City. In the latter part 
of 1848 the company distributed 
an advertising flyer in the eas- 
tern United States which promis- 
ed more than it ever delivered. 

Touting "the best route to the 
California gold!" the flyer read

in part that the company was 
"making active progress in the 
construction of an 'Aerial Trans- 
port' for the express purpose of 
carrying passengers between New 
York and California. 

"It is expected to put this ma- 
chine in operation about the first 
of April, 1849, and the transport 
is expected to make a trip to the 
gold region and back in seven 
days. . . ." 

On the flyer the "aerial loco- 
motive" is illustrated — a huge 
cigar-shaped device, identified 
as a "gasbag," with a tail. Un- 
der it, attached with "sturdy ma- 
terial arrows can't puncture," is 
a similarly-shaped car with win- 
dows in its midsection. "Snug 
gondola with benches for 50 or 
more passengers," the caption 
reads. From the top of the gon- 
dola stretches a long pipe which 
is identified as "a steam engine 
for controlled propulsion through 
sunny skies at 60 miles the 
hour." 

Except for this pipe, entre- 
preneur Porter's vessel is almost 
a dead ringer for the type of 
"UFO" widely reported in the 
late 1800's and early 1900's which 
came to be called "the airship," 
although obviously there had to 
be more than one of them and 
they did not all look alike. But in 
the advertisement of an obscure 
company lie the first hints of a 
bizarre mystery which is stag- 


gering in its implications.* 
* * * 

DURING THE 1850's myste- 
rious "airships" regularly 
crossed the skies of Germany 
and just before that, probably in 
the year 1848, an enigmatic 
young German named C. A. A. 
Dellschau immigrated to the 
United States. Dellschau's own 
testimony places him in Sonora, 
a California mining town, in the 
1850's. Where he might have 
been in the decades after that is 
unknown. We do know, how- 
ever, that about the turn of the 
century he married a widow and 
took up residence in Houston, 
Tex., where he lived in virtual 
seclusion. He had no friends; by 
all accounts his quarrelsome dis- 
position kept everyone at a dis- 
tance. Dismissed as an eccentric 
by the few who knew him Dell- 
schau devoted hours to the com- 
pilation of a series of scrapbooks 
filled with clippings, drawings 
and cryptic notations. He died in 
1924 at the age of 92. 

Were it not for a chance dis- 
covery many years later Dells- 
chau's life would have gone un- 
noticed. But one day in May 1969 
a UFOlogist named P. G. Navar- 
ro happened to stroll past an

tery. What we offer instead are possi- 
bilities suggested by a wide range of 
often conflicting evidence complicated 
by the distance in time separating us

firsthand investigation impossible in all 
but rare instances).

aviation exhibit at the University 
of St. Thomas in Houston. Two 
large scrapbooks (Dellschau's) 
caught his eye and he stopped to 
take a closer look.* 

He found that the scrapbooks 
contained old news stories and 
articles about attempts of vari- 
ous inventors to construct 
heavier-than-air flying machines. 
But these were not nearly so in- 
teresting as Dellschau's draw- 
ings of strange-looking, cumber- 
some vessels which he claimed 
actually had been flown at one 
time. 

Navarro, his curiosity aroused, 
sought more of the scrapbooks 
and over a period of time ac- 
quired 10 more — from such 
places as a junk shop in Houston 
and from a woman art collector 
who had been interested in 
Dellschau's strange drawings. 
Navarro even talked with Dell- 
schau's stepdaughter, then an 
old woman. Finally he set out to 
make sense of Dellschau's notes 
which had been penned in En- 
glish, German and code. When 
he had finished he had recon- 
structed an incredible story. 

One thing was obvious: Dell- 
schau was of two minds about 
what he was doing. On one hand 
he wanted his "secrets" known; 
on the other he seemed afraid to 


•In telephone conversations and by cor- 
respondence, Navarro himself has pro. 
vided us with this Information. 


speak directly. So he com- 
promised and wrote in a fashion 
aimed to discourage all but the 
most determined investigator — 
and even so his writings in the 
main only add to the mystery. 

He was writing for an audi- 
ence — if not one in his own day, 
one in some future period. He 
addressed potential readers 
thus: "You will . . . Wonder 
Weaver . . . you will unriddle 
these writings. They are my 
stock of open knowledge. They 
. . . will end like all the others . . . 
with good intentions but too 
weak-willed to assign and put to 
work." 

From the notes Navarro learn- 
ed that in the 1850's Dellschau 
and a group of associates, about 
60 in all, gathered in Sonora, 
Calif., where they formed an 
"Aero Club" and constructed 
and flew heavier-than-air vehi- 
cles. They worked in an open 
field near Columbia, a small 
town near Sonora. (Today an 
airstrip covers the field, the only 
area in the predominantly hilly 
region where planes can take off 
and land safely.) 

The club worked in secrecy 
and its members were not per- 
mitted to talk about their activ- 
ities or to use the aircraft for 
their own purposes. One member 
who threatened to take his ma- 
chine to the public in the hope of 
making a fortune died in an 


90 


FATE 


aerial explosion — the victim, 
Dellschau hints, of murder. An- 
other, a "high educated me- 
chanic" identified as Gustav 
Freyer, was called to account by 
the club for withholding new in- 
formation. Apparently this was 
no ordinary social group. 

The "Aero Club" was a branch 
of a larger secret society whose 
initials Dellschau gives as 
"NYMZA." He says little about 
this society except to observe 
that in 1858 it was headed by a 
George Newell in Sonora. Other- 
wise he alludes to orders from 
unnamed superiors who were 
overseeing the club's activities. 
These were not governmental 
authorities, for Dellschau writes 
that an official who somehow 
learned of their work once ap- 
proached club members and 
tried to persuade them to sell 
their inventions for use as wea- 
pons of war. The unnamed 
superiors instructed the club to 
refuse the offer. 

The club had a number of air- 
craft at its disposal, including 
among others August Schoetler's 
.Aero Dora, Robert Nixon's Aero 
Rondo and George Newell's Aero 
Newell. However, from Dell- 
schau's drawings it is hard to be- 
lieve that anything resembling 
these machines ever could have 
flown. Navarro remarks, "The 
heavy body of the machines 
seems to be radically out of pro- 


portion to the gasbag or balloon 
which is supposed to lift the con- 
traption. Considering the large 
amount of gas (usually hydrogen 
or helium) that is required to lift 
one of today's dirigibles or even 
a small blimp, it is inconceivable 
that the small quantity of gas 
used in Dellschau's airship 
would be sufficient to lift it." 

But this wasn't ordinary gas. 
According to Dellschau it was a 
substance called "NB" which 
had the capacity to "negate 
weight." Incredible as it may 
seem he is talking about anti- 
gravity. 

Dellschau's notes have a curi- 
ously pessimistic tone. One 
strange paragraph reads, "We 
are all together in our graves. 
We get together in my house. We 
eat and drink and are joyful. We 
do mental work, but everybody 
is forlorn, as they feel they are 
fighting a losing battle. But little 
likelihood is there that fate shall 
bring forth the right man." 

Dellschau wrote of the human 
race — and even the planet 
Earth — as if he stood apart 
from it. One peculiar paragraph 
of his oddly archaic German 
reads: "Your Christian love 
reaches for the Wanderplace, 
and wanders away from Earth. 
Planets there are enough where 
Christian love shall be as we 
say so nicely in the Book Selag." 
A drawing elsewhere shows the

figure of a devil opening a crack 
in the fabric of the sky above one 
of the "Aeros." The overall im- 
pression conveyed by his writings 
is that Dellschau was a man who 
knew secrets that would render 
him forever an outsider, isolated 
from the community of mankind. 

Who was he? A spinner of tall 
tales? But to what end? If he is 
only that why did he spend years 
compiling the scrapbooks — de- 
voting most of his waking hours 
to the task — on the slight 
chance that one day far in the 
future, long after his death, 
someone might be taken in? 

ON NOVEMBER 1, 1896, the 
Detroit Free Press reported 
that in the near future a New 
York inventor would construct 
and fly an "aerial torpedo boat." 
And on November 17 the Sacra- 
mento Bee reprinted a telegram 
the newspaper had received 
from a New York man who said 
he and some friends would board 
an airship of his invention and 
fly it to California. The trip, he 
said, would take no more than 
two days. That very night all hell 
broke loose and the Great Air- 
ship Scare of 1896-97 was off and 
running. 

The next day the Bee led off a 
long article with this paragraph: 
"Last evening between the hours 
of six and seven o'clock, in the 
year of our Lord eighteen hun- 


dred and ninety-six, a most 
startling exhibition was seen in 
the sky in this city of Sacra- 
mento. People standing on the 
sidewalks at certain points in the 
city between the hours stated, 
saw coming through the sky over 
the housetops, what appeared to 
them to be merely an electric 
arc lamp propelled by some mys- 
terious force. It came out of the 
east and sailed unevenly toward 
the southwest, dropping now 
nearer to the earth, and now 
suddenly rising into the air again 
as if the force that was whirling 
it through space was sensible of 
the dangers of collision with ob- 
jects upon the earth. . . ." 

Hundreds of persons saw it. 
Those who got the closest look 
said the object was huge and 
cigar-shaped and had four large 
wings attached to an aluminum 
body. Some insisted they heard 
voices and raucous laughter 
emanating from the ship. A man 
identified as R. L. Lowry and a 
companion allegedly saw four 
men pushing the craft along the 
ground by its wheels. Lowry's 
friends asked them where they 
were going. 

"To San Francisco," they re- 
plied. "We hope to be there by 
midnight." 

One J. H. Vogel, who was in 
the vicinity, confirmed the story 
and added that the vessel was 
"egg-shaped."

FATE 


The next afternoon an airship 
passed over Oak Park, Calif., 
leaving a trail of smoke and soon 
San Francisco, Oakland and 
other cities and towns in the 
north-central part of California 
had their own stories in all the 
newspapers. 

Several persons now stepped 
forward to tell of earlier sight- 
ings. One was a fruit rancher near 
Bowman, Placer County, who 
said he and members of his fam- 
ily had watched an airship fly by 
at 100 miles an hour in late 
October. Even more remarkable 
was the statement of a man who 
claimed that in August he and 
fellow hunters had tracked a 
wounded deer across Tamalpais 
Mountain until they came to a 
clearing where six men were 
working on an airship. k 

The most baffling part of the 
whole flap, which lasted well into 
December 1896, was the role of 
"E, H. Benjamin," a dentist 
whose name the newspapers al- 
ways enclosed in quotation 
marks, as if they had reason to 
doubt his identity. It was either 
Benjamin or his uncle who that 
November approached George 
D. Collins, a San Francisco 
lawyer, and asked him to repre- 
sent his interests in the patenting 
of an airship. He told the in- 
credulous Collins that he had 
come from Maine to California 
seven years before in order to 


conduct his experiments without 
danger of interruption. 

Collins told reporters that his 
wealthy client (whom he never 
identified) did his work near 
Oroville where Collins himself 
had viewed the invention — an 
enormous construction 150 feet 
long. "It is built on the aeroplane 
system and has two canvas 
wings 18 feet wide and rudder 
shaped like a bird's tail," the 
attorney said. "I saw the thing 
ascend about 90 feet under per- 
fect control." 

On November 17, Collins went 
on, the airship had flown the 60 
miles between Oroville and Sac- 
ramento in 45 minutes. This was 
not the first flight the inventor 
had made. For two weeks he had 
been flying in attempts to perfect 
the craft's navigational appara- 
tus. 

This led to the story in the 
Sacramento Bee for November 
23, datelined Oroville: "The 
rumor that the airship which is 
alleged to have passed over Sac- 
ramento was constructed near 
this town seems to have a grain 
of truth in it. The parties who 
could give information if they 
would are extremely reticent. 
They give evasive answers or 
assert they know absolutely 
nothing about it. 

"Not a single person that saw 
or knew of an airship being con- 
structed near here can be found 


MYSTERY AIRSHIPS OF THE 1800's 


93 


and yet there is a rumor that 
some man has been experiment- 
ing with different kinds of gas 
and testing those which are 
lighter than air. The experi- 
ments were made some miles 
east of the town and no one is 
able to give any names of the 
parties, who are evidently stran- 
gers and seeking to avoid publi- 
city." 

j.'he San Francisco Call estab- 
lished that "Benjamin," a native 
of Carmel, Me., had been seen in 
the Orville area visiting a wealthy 
uncle and confiding to friends 
that he had invented something 
which would "revolutionize the 
world." 

Several days into the contro- 
versy, the inventor dispensed 
with the services of lawyer Col- 
lins because he was talking too 
much. W. H. H. Hart, a former 
state attorney general and a 
highly respected man, took over 
Collins' job. In subsequent news- 
paper interviews Hart revealed 
that two airships existed, one in 
the east and the other in Cali- 
fornia. "I have been concerned 
in the eastern invention for some 
time personally," he said. "The 
idea is to consolidate both inter- 
ests." 

The western craft would be 
used as a weapon of war. "From 
what I have seen of it," Hart 
said, "I have not the least doubt 
that it will carry four men and 


1,000 pounds of dynamite. I am 
quite convinced that two or three 
men could destroy the city of 
Havana in 48 hours." 

Hart thus represented both 
airship inventors, one in Califor- 
nia and one in New Jersey. The 
former had Hart say, ". . . if the 
Cubans would give him $10 mil- 
lion he would wipe out the Span- 
ish stronghold." This was not the 
last time airships and Cuba* 
would be mentioned in the same 
breath, as we shall see. 

Early in December 1896 a 
stranger appeared at a business 
establishment in Fresno, Calif., 
and inquired for a George Jen- 
nings. Covered with dust, the 
man looked as if he had traveled 
a long distance. When Jennings 
stepped out of a back room he 
greeted the visitor like an old 
friend. The two men engaged in 
whispered conversation and the 
persons standing nearby were 
nonplussed to overhear the word 
"airship" spoken more than once. 

Later Jennings talked freely to 
a reporter for the Fresno Semi- 
Weekly Expositor, balking only 
at giving his friend's name. 

"It is true the airship is in 
Fresno County," he said. "Just 

•In this period the then-new "yellow jour- 
nalism" was keeping American public

independence. After the Cuban insurrec- 
tion of 1895. public sentiment was run- 
ning high against Spain and the myste- 
rious destruction of the U.S.S. Maine in 
Havana harbor on February 15, 1898, 
triggered the Spanish-American War.

where I do not know myself. It is 
also true that the man who was 
in here a short time ago is one of 
the inventors. He told me the trip 
to this country was involuntary 
upon the part of the men in the 
airship. In other words the ma- 
chine came itself and they 
couldn't stop it. (I was told) that 
they were flying, as usual, 
around Contra Costa County hills 
and rose to a height of about 
1,000 feet. Suddenly the airship 
struck a current of air and re- 
fused to answer to its steering 
gear. It was borne rapidly south- 
ward against all efforts to 
change its course until suddenly 
the current of air seemed to less- 
en and the machine once more 
became manageable. The men 
aboard at once descended and 
flew about looking for a hiding 
place, which they at length 
found." 

Jennings said he was sure that 
individuals in nearby Watertown 
and Selma must have observed 
the craft as it limped through the 
county in search of a "hiding 
place." Sure enough, the day be-

fore his encounter with the aero- 
naut, the San Francisco Call had 
published a letter from five 
Watertown men who said they 
had seen an enormous airship 
nearly collide with a cornice on 
the city's post office building the 
evening of November 20. The 
craft had an "intensely bril- 
liant" light and the witnesses 
could see human forms aboard. 

The evening of December 5 
Selma citizens were treated to 
the unnerving spectacle of a low- 
flying brilliantly-illuminated ob- 
ject sailing rapidly toward the 
southeast. 

"The character of the witnes- 
ses is such as to leave no doubt 
that they saw just what they de- 
scribed," the Selma Irrigator edi- 
torialized. 

After the first week of Decem- 
ber the airships seemed to have 
disappeared, the ' 'inventors" 
were heard from no more and 
everything returned to normal 
— but not for long. The in- 
credible part was yet to come.

Grandmother Gave Me 

A PRECIOUS 
INHERITANCE 

As frightening as the ghostly manifestations were, 
the knowledge they brought me has been more valuable than gold. 

By Phyllis Hulstend 


IN 1951 when I was 16 years old 
my family moved from Hood 
River, Ore., to Hermiston, Ore., 
where my father W. O. Ireland 
had a construction job on Mc- 
Nary Dam. In 1953 I was grad- 
uated from high school and a 
year later married my husband 
Marvin. When Marvin went over- 
seas to fight in the Korean War 
I moved back to be with my 
parents and grandmother. 

My grandmother Lucy Ireland 
had lived with my family since I 
was three years old. A sweeter 
person you never could hope to 
know. She was very close to us 
all but especially to me. Grand- 
mother slept in a twin bed next 
to mine. Often she couldn't sleep 
at night and then she would 
awaken me by running her hands 
down my leg and softly call to 
me using her pet name for me, 
"Phyllissie, Phyllissie, I can't 
sleep. Please wake up and talk 
to me." 

I would awaken, sometimes 


grumpily, and we would talk for 
a while. Then she would go back 
to her bed or maybe even slip 
into bed beside me. 

For some reason we never 
could understand Grandmother 
had a superstitious fear of the 
date of her birthday, August 13, 
and always would celebrate on 
the 12th instead. We tried to plan 
some special activity to make 
August 13 happy for her but we 
rarely took her mind off her 
fears. Some years her anxiety 
over the date made her physical- 
ly ill. 

The doctors warned us that 
Grandmother had a very weak 
heart and expressed surprise she 
had lived so long with her con- 
dition. But the condition finally 
overtook her in late July 1955, 
when she was 83. Dr. Johnson 
immediately placed her in Good 
Shepherd Hospital in Hermiston 
and kept her in an oxygen tent 
and under sedation. Her lungs 
kept filling with fluid despite 


95 


or, 


FATE 


frequent taps and Dr. Johnson 
advised us that her condition was 
serious. 

Most heartbreaking was her 
confused thinking. She didn't rec- 
ognize me at all and would refer 
to me as the hired girl. I became 
so upset I could not bring my- 
self to visit her. She kept think- 
ing my father was her husband 
Benjamin Ireland, whom he re- 
sembled, and she looked forward 
to his daily visits. 

On August 11 Mother and Dad 
were delayed around dinner time 
and had to leave for the hospital 
visiting hours before everything 
was cleared from the table. I 
agreed I would finish cleaning up 
and see to it that everything was 
put in order before I went to my 
bedroom to read. 

Surprisingly Grandmother's 
mind was clear this time. She 
recognized them at once and 
asked for me. She seemed quite 
disappointed that I had stayed 
home and Dad promised her that 
I would come to see her the 
next evening. The nurse hurried 
them from the room, not want- 
ing to tire Grandmother unduly. 
Dr. Johnson was surprised by 
Grandmother's turn for the better 
but cautioned them that there 
was little hope of her living much 
longer. When Dad phoned me at 
home to tell me of Grandmoth- 
er's progress I was disappointed 
that I had not gone with them. 


He told me that her condition 
seemed so good that he was sure 
she would be fine the next eve- 
ning, and I could visit her then. 

I returned to my bedroom and 
resumed my reading. I had come 
to the most exciting part of the 
book when our cocker spaniel 
Toby began whining and bark- 
ing. I became really concerned 
when he dove under my bed and 
lay there trembling and whining. 
I roused myself to see what was 
going on. 

I heard a thump-shuffle sound 
but this was only normal in the 
house. Grandmother had horri- 
ble bunions on her feet and con- 
sequently walked in a shuffling 
manner. Whenever my parents 
were gone from the house Grand- 
mother became nervous and 
would pace back and forth look- 
ing for them out of the windows 
or open the door hoping to see 
them returning. I heard the front 
door open and close but this did 
not strike me as unusual. I had 
been so engrossed in my book 
that I was nearly oblivious to the 
sounds that had Toby so upset. 
Not until I heard the shuffling 
walk resume did it dawn on me 
that Grandmother was in the 
hospital and could not be mak- 
ing the sounds. 

My hair stood on end as I heard 
the sound of footsteps. They en- 
tered the kitchen right next to 
my bedroom. I heard the refrig- 


A PRECIOUS INHERITANCE 


97 


erator door being opened and a 
platter being placed on the coun- 
ter. Then the door was closed 
and the silverware drawer was 
opened and closed. I listened un- 
easily to the sounds of someone 
eating and silverware clattering 
against a plate. Every noise was 
exaggerated by my terror. How 
could Grandmother possibly be 
here? 

Then I heard the sounds of 
someone turning on the water at 
the kitchen sink, getting down a 
glass from the cabinet, filling it 
with water and turning off the 
water. Then there was a sudden 
silence, broken only by Toby's 
whimpering. I kept telling myself 
that what I was hearing was im- 
possible but the silence only 
served to heighten my terror. 

To my horror the thump-shuffle 
started up again and was head- 
ing right for my bedroom door! 
My heart pounded wildly as the 
footsteps drew closer and closer. 
Even though Grandmother never 
would hurt me this experience 
was horribly different. Then I 
actually saw her at the foot of 
my bed, outlined by the light 
from my reading lamp. She 
seemed solid yet at the same 
time I could see through her. 
Grandmother smiled and ex- 
tended her hand as if she wanted 
me to come with her. An irresist- 
ible urge to put my hand in hers 
came over me. 


Just at that moment the shrill 
ringing of the telephone shattered 
the silence. Grandmother seemed 
to float away, still beckoning with 
her hand. I bolted from my bed- 
room, Toby at my heels. Good 
Shepherd Hospital was calling to 
say that Grandmother had just 
died. I thanked them for calling 
and hung up the phone, now close 
to hysteria. Frantically I dialed 
the number of the friends Mother 
and Dad had gone to visit. When 
I got Dad on the phone I blurted 
out my story and, alarmed by 
my emotional turmoil, he prom- 
ised to hurry home and told me 
to wait on the lawn for them. 

They had to drive clear across 
town to get home, normally a 
10-minute drive. Dad made it in 
half that time. I fell into their 
arms, crying hysterically, when 
they climbed out of the car. 

Neither Mother nor Dad could 
believe my story of Grandmoth- 
er's return. I have a vivid imag- 
ination; perhaps I had simply 
fallen asleep and dreamed it. But 
I was positive I had been 
awake. We went into the house 
to investigate. They noticed right 
away how frightened Toby acted. 
The poor dog refused to go into 
my bedroom. Dad tried to push 
Toby into my room and he 
snarled wildly and nipped Dad in 
his terror. 

Then we went into the kitchen. 
On the drainboard was the plat-

ter of meat left over from dinner 
— pork, Grandmother's favorite. 
Mother herself had put it into the 
refrigerator before she had left 
for the hospital. Beside the plat- 
ter was a dish and silverware 
that obviously had been used. In 
the sink sat a glass half full of 
water. Now they believed my 
story. 

On August 15, 1955, Grandmoth- 
er was buried in Idlewild Ceme- 
tery in Hood River, Ore. We all 
remarked how close it was to 
August 13, the birth date she 
dreaded so much. 

But her burial did not settle 
things. Grandmother would awak- 
en me at night running her hands 
down my legs as she had done 
so often when unable to sleep. 
Half-asleep, I would talk with her 
until I remembered that she was 
dead. Then I would run from 
my room in terror. Finally I had 
to move from my parents' house 
and get an apartment. 


We never learned why Grand- 
mother returned so insistently. 
Perhaps she wanted something. 
Before her death she assured us 
that she had made all the ar- 
rangements for her own funeral. 
But there was only a small 
amount in her savings account 
and the undertaker knew of no 
payment. Did she perhaps have 
money hidden somewhere she 
wanted to lead me to? We 
searched in all the spots where 
she used to hide money but never 
found any. 

As frightening as Grandmoth- 
er's visits were at the time, they 
brought me one precious gift: a 
certainty that there is life after 
death. This was to be my great- 
est source of strength some 15 
years later when my beloved 
seven-year-old daughter Michele 
died in a tragic accident. Grand- 
mother gave me the courage to 
accept and know that there is no 
death.

Exercizes 

THE FORCES of EVIL 

By Dennis Eisenberg 

With church approval a 51-year-old Anglican clergyman has spent 
20 years fighting hauntings and alleged possessions. 


Seated in the parlor of his Hampstead 
parsonaqe the Reverend Neil-Smith 
reads about his fictional counterpart. 


AN ENGLISH vicar has been 
fighting the devil and other 
evil spirits for the past 20 years, 
ever since as a young man enter- 
ing the ministry he discovered 
his ability to exorcize. With the 
full blessing of the Church of 
England and the Archbishop of 
Canterbury, the Rev. Christo- 
pher Neil-Smith, aged 51, has ex- 
orcized evil forces which have 
possessed men, women and 
children all over the world. 
Thousands of callers have been 
freed from evil spirits, curses 
and witchcraft vows. Ghosts 
have been chased from haunted 
houses and violent criminals 
whose actions had sent them to 
prison have come under the cler- 
gyman's healing hands. 

In recent months the Reverend 
Neil-Smith has encountered an 



100 


FATE 


ever-increasing number of per- 
sons who have toyed with occult 
forces and later regretted it. 
This problem is taken seriously 
by the Church of England. 
Alarmed by the growth of witch- 
craft in Britain, the Bishop of 
Exeter, the Rt. Rev. Robert Mor- 
timer, led a team of churchmen 
in a detailed investigation of the 
black arts throughout the coun- 
try. After 10 years of carefully 
sifting evidence from reliable 
witnesses the Bishop produced a 
booklet demanding that the 
Church of England set up a spe- 
cial training program for exor- 
cists. 

"It is quite evident that few 
people in the church have any 
knowledge on the subject," the 
Bishop says. "There is an in- 
creasing interest in black magic 
and the occult as people turn 
away from the church. This re- 
veals the presence and the power 
of evil forces. 

"The need for the restoration 
of the practice of exorcism to its 
proper place is becoming steadi- 
ly more evident and more ur- 
gent," the Bishop concludes. 

There is no central registry of 
exorcists in the Church of Eng- 
land; each bishop maintains his 
own list of priests who may exor- 
cize. The Reverend Neil-Smith is 
one of only five Anglican clerics 
in London who are authorized to 
practice exorcism. Even though 


exorcism is exhausting work, he 
has had to help up to a dozen 
callers in a single day. 

In his Victorian home in the 
London suburb of Hampstead the 
vicar described how he goes to 
work when a client comes to 
him. "The minute a person 
comes into the room," explains 
the matter-of-fact vicar, "I can 
tell whether there is something 
psychologically or medically 
wrong or whether that person 
has an evil spirit operating 
through his personality. If there 
is something super naturally 
wrong, I have a tingling feeling 
in my arm or shoulder or head. 
It is not a pleasant feeling and I 
know I must be on my guard. 

"I don't like to use the word 
'devil' lest people think I'm some 
sort of crank straight from the 
middle ages. But in my heart I 
know that I am facing the work 
of the devil. Only my faith in 
God enables me to fight off the 
Satanic spirits or forces possess- 
ing so many of my callers. 

"In 1971 I was asked to see a 
young boy of 11. The child unex- 
pectedly had begun to behave 
strangely. He became violent 
and moody and his schoolwork 
deteriorated. He began setting 
fires at home. His father became 
alarmed when he heard the boy 
moving large items of furniture 
around the house in the middle 
of the night. Some of the furni-

GUIDELINES FOR EXORCISM 
THE BISHOP OF EXETER suggests the following procedures when dealing 
with a case of possible possession by an evil spirit: "It always should be 
determined first that the patient's illness is neither physical nor mental be- 
fore exorcism is used. The exorcist must be a clergyman. Ideally every 
diocesan bishop should appoint qualified priests as exorcists, sometimes in 
collaboration with Roman Catholics. Exorcism should be regarded not merely 
as the purely negative action of expelling evil forces but rather as a demon- 
stration of the power of the Resurrection to overcome evil and replace it 
with good. 

"If exorcism takes place in a house, animals and children should be 
removed and given a prayer of protection before the exorcism service. The 
exorcist should stand before the patient and say: 'I command you. every 
evil spirit, in the name of God the Father Almighty, in the name of Jesus 
Christ his only Son and In the name of the Holy Spirit, that, harming no 
one, you depart from this creature of God and return to the place appointed 
you; there to remain forever.' 

"In the case of a building to be exorcized the priest should stand in the 
main room and say: 'God, the Son of God, who by death destroyed death 
and overcome him who had the power of death, beat down Satan quickly.' 
The priest then makes the sign of the cross. 

"Then the priest continues: 'Deliver this place from all evil spirits, all 
vain imaginations, projections and phantasms; and all deceits of the evil one; 
and bid them harm no one but depart to the place appointed them; there 
to remain forever.' " 


ture was too heavy for a single 
adult to move, let alone a slight- 
ly built youngster. 

"Shortly afterwards the boy 
set a fire in his school. In March 
1971 he was taken to juvenile 
court in Braintree, Essex, and 
released to his parents. The fam- 
ily priest was disturbed by the 
lad's uncharacteristic behavior 
and asked me to see the boy. 

"The minute I saw the boy I 
knew he was possessed by some 
satanic force. I put my hands 
over his head and said the pray- 
er which is in the Bible for exor- 
cizing evil. As I said the prayer I 


felt the vibrations come surging 
through my arms and pass from 
my body. From that time on- 
ward the boy was never in trou- 
ble again. 

' 'I was curious to discover 
what had gone wrong in his life 
and was told that the bad behav- 
ior started when his grandfath- 
er died. The boy and the old man 
had been very close and I under- 
stand the grandfather had been 
a 'peculiar' man. I can only as- 
sume that the spirit of the old 
man in the boy's body accounted 
for his misbehavior. 

"I had another case not long

ago — a well-known London solic- 
itor, a man whose name is often 
in the newspapers for he handles 
very big criminal cases. I have 
promised not to reveal his identi- 
ty so I shall call him John Gor- 
don. He had as a client Max 
Wilson, a dangerous and violent 
criminal. On his first meeting 
with Wilson in July 1970 Gordon 
said he had felt most peculiar 
and when he got home he actual- 
ly fainted. For the next two 
weeks he couldn't concentrate 
and he found himself short-tem- 
pered with his family and staff. 
His work began to get behind 
and on two occasions he suffered 
fainting spells. Naturally Gordon 
went to doctors but they could 
find nothing wrong. 

"He knew something serious 
must be happening when he felt 
that he himself wanted to act 
violently. Realizing that his 
problem was not physical * he 
went to his local Church of Eng- 
land where he was referred to 
me. I suspected that somehow 
the criminal had projected an 
evil force into the solicitor and I 
performed an exorcism. Gordon 
was not at all religious but he 
admits that something strange 
happened during the ritual. I 
agree, for I sensed that an evil 
spirit was driven from Gordon's 
body during the prayer. Now 
John Gordon is back to normal." 

More and more the Reverend 


Neil-Smith finds his time is taken 
up by men and women who have 
gotten involved in witchcraft or 
suffer from black magic spells. 
"The only time in my life I was 
really frightened," he says, 
"was in January 1971 when I was 
dealing with a young woman, 
Daisy Morris, who admitted that 
she was the chief of a black 
witchcraft coven outside of Lon- 
don. Her husband Edward had 
discovered this and warned her 
that unless she gave up her 'non- 
sense' as he termed it he would 
divorce her. 

"I put my hands over her head 
as is my custom and I was start- 
ing the prayer when I suddenly 
felt a powerful force hurtle 
through my body. My heart beat 
wildly and I had palpitations in 
my chest. I realized that this 
woman had not wanted to sur- 
render her black witchcraft pow- 
ers and she was resisting me. I 
was told that one of the acts she 
performed as a black witch was 
to wed satan and clearly the de- 
monic powers in her were fight- 
ing hard to prevent her return to 
the path of truth. She fainted at 
my feet but got up a few seconds 
later and wandered across the 
church as if in trance. Suddenly 
she fainted again. This time it 
took quite a long time to get her 
to come around. When she re- 
turned to consciousness she fell 
on her knees in prayer. To the

best of my knowledge she has 
not engaged in black magic 
since. 

"On another occasion a man 
came all the way from South 
America to see me. He had lived 
all his life in Brazil and had 
joined a satan worship cult. 
When he arrived at the vicarage 
he was completely possessed. I 
exorcized him and when I finish- 
ed, I felt the usual powerful jerk 
through my body as the spirit 
departed. With a loud shriek he 
fell to the floor and cried out, 'I 
believe in God.' He broke down 
and wept and said that at last 
he was free from the terrible 
hold the devil had on him." 
# # • 

SOMETIMES the police will re- 
fer clients to the Reverend 
Neil-Smith. "I recall one case in 
November 1970," the vicar re- 
lates. "A young student, Douglas 
Graham, claimed that an Indian 
had put a curse on him. Douglas 
complained that he no longer 
could study and that 'kinky' sex- 
ual urges disturbed him. He felt 
he was going to pieces. The Lon- 
don police were baffled when 
Douglas failed to respond to me- 
dical treatment. Far from being 
hysterical or stupid, the young 
man was very bright and level- 
headed. 

"The police sent Douglas to 
me and the moment he entered 
the room I immediately sensed 


an evil force in him. After an 
exorcism he returned to his old 
self. The police wanted to prose- 
cute the Indian but I suggested 
that they not do so, for how can 
you prove a case like that? 

"In several cases violently in- 
sane people have been brought 
to me. A Dr. Williams from 
Gravesend Hospital in Kent sent 
me one such man. Herbert 
James had committed a violent 
crime and was certified insane. 
The medical men were puzzled 
when James failed to respond to 
the treatment and the drugs they 
tried. Nothing seemed to calm 
their violent patient. Dr. Wil- 
liams suspected something un- 
usual might be wrong with James 
and had him brought to my 
church. 

"Even though James was in a 
straitj acket, he was so violent 
that the two male nurses who 
attended him refused to leave 
him alone with me. I was wor- 
ried by the man's wild, demonic 
appearance but proceeded with 
the exorcism. After I said the 
prayer, James seemed to calm 
down. Herbert James recovered 
so quickly that now he is treated 
as an outpatient at his local hos- 
pital, his violent behavior a thing 
of the past. I suspect that much 
of the violence today is commit- 
ted by men who are possessed by 
uncontrollable evil forces." 

Another phase of the Reverend 


104 


FATE 


Neil-Smith's work deals with 
ghosts which inhabit houses. The 
Bishop of Exeter distinguishes 
different kinds of hauntings: 
"There is demonic interfer- 
ence — usually at desecrated sites 
such as ruined sanctuaries. Then 
there are the souls of the depart- 
ed, which are ghosts proper and 
most often spirits of those who 
have died recently. Also there 
are poltergeists and levitation, 
which remain a mystery but 
could be some form of mischie- 
vous spirits. Lastly, places of 
sin, such as the sites of ancient 
fertility rites, are often haunted." 

In October 1971 the Reverend 
Neil-Smith was called in on a 
haunting on the Isle of Wight, 
"The Dickson family had con- 
verted an old house into a hotel," 
he explains, "and hoped to do 
well with the summer tourists. 
But although visitors came they 
refused to stay more than one 
night. None would give a reason 
until one day a terrified couple 
told Mr. Dickson that his house 
was haunted. 

"The local vicar went to the 
house and said prayers but the 
disturbance continued. You must 
understand that it is not saying 
the prayer which is important, 
for then it would be just a lot of 
magical words which get rid of 
the evil. You have to have this 
gift which I have been given. 
When his efforts were of no avail 


the vicar sent for me. 

"I walked around the house 
and then went down into the cel- 
lar. There I saw the ghostly out- 
line of a monk. I sometimes can 
see ghosts when those around me 
cannot. The monk told me that 
he had lived there but had mis- 
behaved and used to seduce girls 
in the basement of the monas- 
tery. This was long ago and I 
knew he was seeking deliverance 
and that was why he had bother- 
ed the guests in the house. 

"I said a prayer and the monk 
disappeared. Afterwards we 
made inquiries and found that 
the house indeed had been part 
of a monastery. The Dicksons 
never were bothered again. 

"In May 1969 I investigated 
another haunting. Three inde- 
pendent and reliable witnesses 
had written statements sworn 
before lawyers that each had 
seen the ghost of an old woman 
in a certain house on Earl's 
Court Road in Kensington. I went 
along and walked through the 
house and found that in fact of 
the eight rooms there, at least 
five were haunted by this ghost. I 
felt this acutely in the last room, 
which formerly had been a bed- 
room. 

"We had a talk although in 
this instance I could not see the 
ghost. When I say we talked, you 
must understand that this was 
not aloud but rather a communi-

cation between us. She was in- 
deed an old lady who had died 
under mysterious circumstances, 
although I could not grasp exact- 
ly how she had died. I explained 
to her that she could not stay 
there forever. I said a prayer for 
her and she thanked me and dis- 
appeared. Afterwards I found 
that the three sworn statements 
all referred to the five rooms I 
had sensed were haunted, which 
confirmed my impressions. There 
has been no further trouble in 
the house. 

"But I must say there is no 
need to be frightened of ghosts. 
They are only lost souls trying to 
find a way to wherever they are 
going. Usually they are the souls 
or spirits of men or women who 
have met violent deaths and 
don't know that they are dead. 
Often I have had to exorcize 
whole families which are trou- 
bled by spirits, usually in houses 
where there has been a violent or 
sudden death. 

"I don't think people appreci- 
ate how hard and exhausting is 
this work of exorcizing spirits. 
But I have been blessed with this 
gift of exorcizing and I feel I 
must continue. I am armed with 
my belief in God and I know that 


I personally will not be harmed 
as long as I have faith." 

* * * 

COMMENTING ON the growth 
of interest in occultism the 
Bishop of Exeter says, "I have 
been most disturbed by the num- 
ber of requests we have been 
receiving for exorcisms. There 
are a lot of troublesome nonhu- 
man forces around and the prob- 
lem is growing because of the 
increasing numbers of persons 
who dabble in witchcraft, magic 
and the occult. 

"The whole thing has grown 
enormously since the last war 
and I believe this is so because 
the present generation is seeking 
something which is not rational. 
The young people don't seem to 
believe in God, so in a world 
where everything has been care- 
fully rationalized they are turn- 
ing more and more to the magic 
groups, white or black, and to 
the cults and practices of the 
Eastern world. In doing this they 
open the door to all kinds of 
spirit influences. Most of these 
can be countered only by prayer. 

"If I have any advice for peo- 
ple who encounter spirits or 
ghosts it is this: Pray— the Lord 
will deal with them."

HE FOUND HIS ROSE 

By Donald Lombardo 

DURING THE last three years of 
his life my father Thomas Lom- 
bardo was bedridden and suffered 
constant headaches due to arterio- 
sclerosis and high blood pressure. 
With every sharp pain Dad would 
clutch his head with his hands and 
call out to our mother Rose, who 
had died 18 years before. Whenever 
the pain subsided he would fall 
asleep and you could hear him speak 
to his Rose as if she were at his 
bedside. "Rose, call me, call me," he 
repeated constantly. The relatives 
standing by tried in vain to ease his 
headaches but Dad found it difficult 
to swallow the medication. 

Early one Sunday morning in the 
fall of 1970 Dad fell Into a coma and 
the family called for the priest and 
the doctor. The priest came first and 
no sooner had he administered the 
last rites than Dad breathed his last. 
The doctor arrived soon after to 
pronounce him dead. 

The mortician came at 8:00 A.M. 
to remove the body and begin prep- 
arations for viewing. The family 
members assembled but we did not 
want to finalize the funeral plans 
until my brother James arrived from 
outside of Philadelphia. James finally 


arrived at seven that evening and we 
sat in the kitchen solemnly discuss- 
ing the final arrangements. 

In the midst of our conversation a 
voice suddenly cried, "Rose!" 
Everyone froze for a moment but we 
thought it was only imagination as 
we had heard Dad call out the name 
so often during his final months. 
Finally James, who had been too far 
from the city to attend Dad, asked, 
"Did you hear anything?" 

"Yes," I admitted, "I heard Dad's 
voice call 'Rose.' " All the others 
agreed that they had heard it too. 

My sister Betty added, "You know, 
the voice did not sound pained." I

realized then that it was not just 
imagination. I knew for certain, Dad

A DEBT DISCLOSED 

By Samuel S. Wang 

AFTER HIS wife died in 1936 my 
father's best friend Fu-lai Liu 
and his 16-year-old daughter Bao Baa 
moved from our native town of Ta'na 
to the city of Chen'te just south of 
Peking, China. There Mr. Liu and his 
daughter went to work in a cotton 
factory, he as a foreman and she 
as a worker. 

Six months later Mr. Liu was 
killed in the civil war that was then 
ravaging China and in the absence of 
close relatives my father took charge 
of the funeral arrangements. He 
brought Bao Baa back to Ta'na to 
live with us. Two months later my 
parents arranged for the girl to mar- 
ry a man of considerable wealth. 

Chinese custom calls for married 
daughters to return to their families 
for a visit on August 15, the Chinese 
Thanksgiving Day. As Bao Baa had 
no family, she came to visit us, bring- 
ing with her bread, fruit and vege- 
tables. After the traditional festive 
dinner Bao Baa, my parents and I, 
then 10 years old, went to the 
backyard to talk under the weeping 
willow tree. 

In the midst of the conversation 
Bao Baa's voice suddenly began to 
change and her eyes to shine. She 
put her hand to her temple and said, 
"I don't know what's the matter with 
me. I feel dizzy." Her voice dropped 
to a deeper pitch, almost masculine, 
and she began to jabber meaningless 
syllables. 

Abruptly she spoke in a voice re- 
sembling her father's. "Come now, 
Kai. Don't you recognize me? I am 
Fu-lai Liu." Her facial expressions 
and mannerisms so echoed those of 
her late father that my father (Kai 
Wang) was shocked. 


The voice continued, "Last week I 
hid behind the door when Bao Baa's 
mother-in-law beat her with a bam- 
boo stick. She cried all night. 

"Please, old friend, return with my 
daughter and tell that devil that Bao 
Baa is only a child and should not be 
beaten. She's a smart girl and in 
time will manage her household well. 

"Also I owe $200 to Liang Kao, who 
lives in Liang village 18 miles from 
here. After you have settled my es- 
tate, please take that amount and 
pay him. The rest goes to my daugh- 
ter." 

Bao Baa was pale and sweating 
profusely. Father became concerned 
that her body could not stand the 
trance much longer, when the voice 
concluded, "Thank you, dear Kai. I 
know you will see things through." 
The girl trembled and clenched her 
fists and then collapsed. 

In a few moments she regained 
consciousness and rubbed her eyes. 
"Please forgive me; I must have 
fallen asleep. I feel better now." 

"It's okay, dear," replied my fa- 
ther. "Now I have some questions 
for you if you feel up to answering 
them." 

The girl nodded. 

"First," began Father, "did your 
mother-in-law beat you with a stick 
last week?" 

"Yes," admitted the girl, "but how 
did you know?" 

"That's not important. Now, sec- 
ond, do you know a man named 
Liang Kao?" 

She scratched her head thoughtful- 
ly, "No." 

My father returned with Bao Baa 
to her husband's family and spoke to 
the mother-in-law. Afterwards he 
went to the village of Liang to see 
Mr. Kao. When he located him, he 
asked Mr. Kao if Mr. Liu had owned 
him $200. 

"Yes, he did," replied Mr. Kao, 
"but his death cancels the debt." —

APPARITION WITH KNIFE 
By Vitelle H. Scott 

I DON'T know what there was 
about the house but for some rea- 
son I hated staying overnight with 
my sister-in-law Mary and her hus- 
band John in Sacramento, Calif. 
They had bought the house from his 
mother's estate after she died in 
1952. John's mother had built it in 
the 1930's and she and her second 
husband had been its only tenants. So 
there was no history of violence or 
mystery that might have caused my 
uneasiness. 

Mary and John had been in the 
house about seven years when their 
married daughter Eileen discovered 
she could do automatic writing. Soon 
after they had held some writing 
sessions in the house strange things 
began to happen. 

One night in March 1958 Mary 
threw her dress over the back of a 
chair when she undressed. Next 
morning when she picked it up to 
hang in the closet she found it cov- 
ered with huge brown spots which 
looked like dried blood. Not long 
after this she found an old bathrobe 
in the closet literally covered with 
dried blood. A clean white dish towel 
came off the clothesline looking as if 
it had been used to wipe up blood. 
Then, as abruptly as they had start- 
ed, the strange happenings stopped. 

One day while I was talking to 
John he confessed to me that he 
often "saw" a Mexican man sitting 
with his back against the wall of an 
adobe shack, his hat pulled over his 
eyes. A pair of mean eyes peered 
from below the brim. "Not the kind 
of person you'd care to know," John 
joked. This vision would come to him 
when he sat daydreaming in the 
front room. 

In midwinter of 1963 my husband 
and I again were in Sacramento and 
expected to spend the night at the 
house. Again I was assailed by that 
uneasy feeling. We retired late. We 


MY PROOF OF SURVIVAL

had talked till after midnight and I 
fell asleep immediately. 

About three o'clock in the morning 
I awoke to see the bedroom door 
open and a young Mexican man walk 
into the room. I was terrified as the 
house had been burglarized a couple 
of times. Yet even more frightening 
was the wicked long knife he carried 
in his hand. 

In horror I gasped, "Are you going 
to kill someone?" 

He looked me straight in the eyes 
and I knew even before he answered 
what he had in mind. "Yes." he 
replied, "you!" 

Never have I prayed more earnest- 
ly for protection. At once he van- 
ished and I lay looking at the empty 
room. My husband slept peacefully 
beside me, undisturbed. Although I 
don't know how, I knew that the man 
I had seen had caught either his girl 
friend or his wife cheating on him 
and had murdered her. 

My feeling about the house left 
after that night. Perhaps my prayers 
had released the soul of the man 
from his bonds to the earth. John 
unearthed one very interesting fact 
from a sister. When his mother 
bought the property there was an 
adobe shack on it. She had it knocked 
down and built her house over the 
site where the shack had stood. — 
Petaluma, Calif.

stairway I had to go through the

room I distinctly saw a foot out of 
the corner of my eye. 

Startled, I turned to look closer 
and there seated in his favorite chair 
was my grandfather, so clear it was 
unnerving. He had his legs crossed in 
his customary manner and his hands 
clasped his knee. As he leaned for- 
ward as if to speak I said, "Grandpa, 
is it really you?" He smiled, nodded

SPIRIT ALARM CLOCK 

By Margaret Elcholm 
TJEFORE HIS final illness my hus- 
JJ band John Kermit Ekholm al- 
ways insisted on driving me to and 
from my job. His work was finished 
by three in the afternoon and mine 
began at four. I didn't drive and he 
refused to allow me to travel by bus. 
He seemed to feel that I needed his 
protection at all times. 

Though I wear a hearing aid and 
sometimes tend to be absentminded 
I always felt he was being overpro- 
tective. But he enjoyed his self-im- 
posed task and I went along with it. 

Not long after John's death in Oc- 
tober 1968 my job was abolished and 
since I had reached 65 I applied for 
social security. But I soon found it 
was inadequate to cover expenses 
and found part-time work. My hours 
varied and some days I had to report 
at 8:00 A. M. This worried me no end 
as I am a late sleeper. I remove my 
glasses with the built-in hearing aid 
when I retire and I feared I never 
would hear the alarm clock. 

I soon learned I had no reason to 
worry. Should I still be sleeping at 
five or 10 minutes past six, three 
taps on my arm or four cool fingers 
on the back of my neck awaken me 
instantly. And how well I know the 
feel of those fingers. John still 
watches over me. — St. Paul, Minn.

him too critical. His final chapter, for 
instance, rips into Moberly's and 
Jourdain's An Adventure and supports 
the Trevor Hall story of an illicit 
relationship between Sir William 
Crookes and medium Florrie Cook. 
Even so, esp is many cuts above Hol- 
der, Frank Edwards, Macklin and a 
host of other paperback marvels. The 
publisher of this paperback (Wilshire 
Book Co., 12015 Sherman Rd.. North 
Hollywood, Calif. 91605) also has 
numerous titles dealing with astrol- 
ogy, handwriting analysis, hypnotism, 
psychedelics, numerology and assorted 
other subjects. A blurb in the back 
of this paperback invites readers to 
write for their free catalogue of "self- 
improvement" books. 

A much more ambitious (if un- 
wieldy' project is "Reprints for ESP 
Research" inaugurated by Follett 
Studios (Box 362. Moorhead, Minn. 
56560). This is the brainchild of Pattie 
Follett and Margaret Lehr, who in 
their careers in the antique business 
have acquired numerous old periodi- 
cals from around the turn of the 
century and noted that many of these 
contain long out-of-print articles on 
psychic topics. Feeling rather remote 
from the psychic field in the hinter- 
lands of Minnesota the girls decided 
they could make a contribution to 
psychic research by reprinting some 
of this material. From their circular 
I expected to see photo-offset copies 
of the original type but no — someone 
has laboriously typed the articles on- 
to offset masters and run off 400 
copies of each reprint. Nineteen re- 
prints make up Follett Studios' first 
offering and additional titles are to 
come. The items vary from one to 10 
pages and are priced at 10 cents a 
page. 

Space does not permit comment on 
all the selections but Follett Studios 
will send you a circular that describes 
their goodies in brief. The article by 
Mark Twain has been reprinted in 
varous places, including Fate, but the 


rest of the material I haven't seen 
before. Some of the cases published 
at the turn of the century are scarcely 
more than anecdotal and hence un- 
satisfying. However, the best case in 
the collection is the viridical hallu- 
cination reported by Harriette Baker 
under the title, "A Puzzle for Meta- 
physicians" (six pages, 60 cents). 
Other reprints are theoretical argu- 
ments or compilations of press reac- 
tions to Patience Worth and Sir 
Oliver Lodge's Raymond. The most 
worthwhile reprint in my opinion is 
the material on poltergeists collected 
by Miss Follett for a high school 
course on ESP HO pages, $1.00). 

. . . AND WHAT YOU DO WITH THEM 

I^AR BE it from me to try to dis- 
courage good intentions but the 
fact remains that there is no really 
satisfactory way to deal with such 
material as Follett and Lehr are re- 
printing. Every scientific field is 
blessed and cursed with the problem 
of reprints from journals, Often they 
are invaluable, especially if your in- 
stitution hasn't the funds to subscribe 
to all the journals. In my years in 
museum work I saw that many re- 
prints received almost daily use. 
Others simply filled boxes or gathered 
dust. There is no simple way to store, 
catalogue, arrange or index the con- 
founded things. 

But what is the alternative? Edited 
collections? A journal devoted to re- 
prints? Both seem out of the (finan- 
cial) picture in the case of the Fol- 
lett-Lehr material. Yet many gems 
lurk in dusty tomes in libraries. 

One can envision that someday a 
computerized network will search out 
references on any given topic and 
provide a print-out listing them and 
where they can be found. Push an- 
other button and a photocopy of any 
given reference flashes across the 
country and into one's hands. (In 
fact, the technology for such a system 
already exists.)

OTHER REVIEWS 
PIONEERS OF THE UNSEEN by Paul 
Tabori, Taplinger Publishing Co., New 
York, N.Y., 1972, 243 pages, $6.50. 

Pioneers of the Unseen, one of 
Taplinger Publishing Co.'s "Fron- 
tiers of the Unknown" series, is a 
worthwhile attempt to portray fa- 
mous psychic researchers of the 
past. Other than scattered volumes 
on Crookes, Harry Price, Hewat Mc- 
Kenzie and a few others, little bio- 
graphical material exists on para- 
psychology's pioneers. It is almost 
impossible to find biographical in- 
formation on many colorful figures 
involved in early psychic research, 

Tabori concentrates on a few: 
Hereward Carrington. Oliver Lodge. 
Charles Richet, Baron Albert von 
Schrenck-Notzing, Cesare Lombroso 
and Raphael Schermann (who was a 
psychic, not a researcher) . 

I was disappointed to find no new 
insights into the lives and work of 
these men. Unfortunately most of the 
character studies are based on their 
published works. For example, little 
of the material on Lodge and Lom- 
broso will be new to anyone who has 
read their writings. The chapter on 
Richet, however, concentrates not 
only on the physiologist's pioneering 
work in France but on his medical, 
philosophical and political writings. 
Tabori had met Schrenck-Notzing 
and gives some interesting highlights 
about him. As much of the Baron's 
writing has not been translated into 
English, Tabori 's account offers valu- 
able information for those who can- 
not read German. 

The language difficulty also pre- 
vails in the case of Schermann, an 
outstanding clairvoyant who gave 
readings from his subjects' handwrit- 
ing. Except for a scarce volume, 
Psycho-Graphology by Bagger, little 
material written by or about Scher- 
mann is in English. Here too Ta- 
bori's volume will be useful to stu-

dents of parapsychology. 

Especially meaty and potentially 
the most welcome is the chapter on 
Carrington who led a guarded life 
and remains an enigmatic figure in 
the annals of psychic research. But 
Tabori does not provide an accurate 
picture of Carrington. On the testi- 
mony of Henry Gilroy alone — with 
little corroborating evidence — Ta- 
bori states that Carrington had an 
affair with Margery Crandon and 
never could break her emotional hold 
over him, This, Tabori claims, ex- 
plains why Carrington maintained 
that Margery was capable of produc- 
ing genuine phenomena, which the 
author obviously cannot believe. 
While Carrington was known as a 
ladies' man and rumor holds that 
Margery conferred her favors on 
certain investigators, I cannot be- 
lieve that such an affair, if it oc- 
curred, could have affected Carring- 
ton's ice-cold critical disposition to- 
ward psychic phenomena. Tabori 
might better have kept to the role of 
historian rather than trying to play 
psychoanalyst. 

These cavils aside, Pioneers of the 
Unseen certainly is recommended 
for nostalgic students of the history 
of psychic research. — D. Scott Rogo.

and bring him into contact with his 
inner creativity. Accompanying each 
exercise are numerous quotations 
from philosophers, psychologists and 
other luminaries which serve to clar- 
ify the text and enrich the reader's 
experience. 

A great deal of care appears to 
have been taken in the book's prepa- 
ration and production. Well-chosen 
illustrations and quotations enhance 
the text and set a mood of wonder 
necessary for the development of 
creative imagination and effective 
meditation. Appropriate cautions 
also are included to protect the un- 
wary from injuring themselves or 
others. 

Except for some exercises which 
appear purely ritualistic, most of 
them appear to be well designed and 
sufficiently detailed to be useful. If 
you are looking for a book to help 
develop your sensitivity and inner 
awareness Passages well may be 
what you are seeking.— C. J. Par- 
shall. 


THE NATURAL DEPTH IN MAN by Wil- 
son Van Dusen, Harper and Row, New 
York, N. Y., 1972, 197 pages, $5.95. 

The jacket calls this book "a 
searcher's guide for exploring the 
secret spaces of our inner worlds." 
Much of it seems to be a commen- 
tary on the Swedish mystic Sweden- 
borg — "the only mystic," states Van 
Dusen, '"whose knowledge of the 
lower depths of the psyche I can 
really respect." Most chapters be- 
gin with a lengthy epigraph from 
Swedenborg's works and the text 
constantly refers to this seer. 

In his exploration of man's mind 
Van Dusen, a California clinical psy- 
chologist, mixes theory with experi- 
ences drawn from his practice. After 
early chapters on sensory perception 
he explores dreams, madness, hal- 
lucinations and mystical experiences. 
He has a great deal to say about

CHRISTIANITY AND THE OCCULT by 
J. Stafford Wright, Moody Press, Chica- 
go, 111., 1972, 160 pages, 75 cents (paper- 
back). 

Although this slender paperback 
will provide interesting insights for 
the casual reader it is aimed directly 
at the reader who has discovered 
that he is psychic, often against his 
will This dilemma is not as rare as 
you might think and a book dealing 
with it constructively is welcome 
reading indeed. 

While the Rev. J. Stafford Wright 
chooses not to regard himself as an 
"expert on the occult," he is neither 
a new nor a superficial author on the 
psychic scene. While I was a student 
in a theological seminary more than 
a decade ago I studied an earlier 
work, on the nature of man, by this 
English educator. Wright regards 
psychism as only a small part of 
human nature, a part of a continuum 
which spirals from physical to men- 
tal to spiritual with no known rule 
governing the flow. Wright devotes 
whole chapters to discussing the re- 
lationship between the psychic and 
the occult, the nature of spirits and 
the responsibility of the psychic. In 
fact this book provides a glimpse of 
the visible and invisible worlds that 
is both awesome and frightening. 

The personal psychic experiences 
Wright recounts are from living cor-

respondents; thus he is addressing 
himself to psychics confronted by all 
the contemporary scene offers. For 
Wright the Bible provides as lively 
and up-to-date information as do his 
correspondents and he deals frankly 
with those scriptures on which Chris- 
tian psychics rely and which all too 
often are ignored or distorted by 
modern churchmen. He then offers 
practical advice to those individuals 
who seek to function effectively both 
as Christians and psychics. 

Wright prescribes the "medicine" 
to cure the conflict between what the 
reader may have been taught about 
the nature of man and what his own 
experience has shown him to be true 
— that conflict which rages within 
the heart of every Christian who is 
also psychic. Wright's prescription 
will work but it is not easy to take — 
impossible perhaps for most occul- 
tists. It will be welcome indeed, how- 
ever, to the Christian who seeks 
peace of mind while living with the 
knowledge that he is psychic. —

MYSTERIES FROM FORGOTTEN 
WORLDS by Charles Berliti, Doubleday 
and Co., New York, N.Y., 1972, 225 pages, 
$8.95. 

This well-illustrated book deserves 
a place on the bookshelf of everyone 
interested in archaeology, the psy- 
chic or just fascinating reading. It 
makes the past civilizations of Amer- 
ica seem as vital as the latest news- 
paper headlines. Everything Berlitz 
writes about — from the archae- 
ological confirmation of Cayce's 
statements about Atlantis to the fas- 
cinating civilization of the Incas — is 
authentic. Numerous photos of 
archaeological finds prove how ad- 
vanced culturally and technologically 
many ancient civilizations were. 

According to ancient Eastern phi- 
losophy history is a never-ending 
cycle. The past can foretell the fu-

JUDAISM AND PSYCHICAL PHENOM- 
ENA by Jacob Baxalc, Garret* Publica- 
tions, New York, N.Y., 1972. 144 pages, 
$6.50. 

The first half of Judaism and Psy- 
chical Phenomena is an elementary 
presentation of psychic phenomena 
in sufficient detail to indicate that 
the claims made are worthy of re- 
spect. Pertinent historic Jewish writ- 
ings are mentioned in passing but in 
general that coverage in reserved for 
the second half of the book, which is 
completely given over to biblical, 
Talmudic and early post-Talmudic 
rabbinical mention and commentary. 
Most of the phenomena discussed in 
that literature were called magic and 
sorcery at the time and on the whole 
appropriately. In general, these 
practices were condemned. Prophecy 
was respectable but as Bazak notes, 
"biblical prophecy does not consist 
so much in foretelling the future as 
in rebuking the people for their 
sins." 

Rabbinical (halachic) literature of 
the middle ages sometimes took a 
less negative attitude toward magic 
and divination but the genera; posi- 
tion was still rejection and condem- 
nation. The great sage Maimonides, 
reasoning on logical grounds, denied 
even the possibility of magical phe- 
nomena. He also called astrology un- 
true although certain Talmudic pas- 
sages apparently show a belief in it. 

Bazak is a j udge in Magistrates 
Court in Jerusalem. His study began 
as an effort to gain better under- 
standing of the elements of "magic 
and witchcraft" in the cases that 
came before him. He soon realized 
the possibilities went deeper than he

at first had supposed and so under- 
took this in-depth survey. He consid- 
ers the general rejection of sorcery 
and the like by Jewish records as 
justified because of the unhealthy 
dependency on such uncertain 
crutches which develops to the neg- 
lect of normal judgment and initia- 
tive. But he does maintain that re- 
search into extrasensory phenomena 
is permissible in order that correct 
comprehension shall be achieved. In 
this connection he quotes from the 
Talmud, "To understand and to 
teach, it is not prohibited." — Harold 
Steinour. 


THE NATURAL MIND by Andrew Weil, 
Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, Mass., 1972. 
214 pages, $5.95. 

If Dr. Weil's central theory is cor- 
rect, many of the basic premises of 
medicine, behavioristic psychology 
and psychiatry will be upset. He 
believes that man has an innate de- 
sire to reach and sustain other states 
of consciousness in order to be more 
fully aware of self and the infinity 
that surrounds him. 

The search for other states of con- 
sciousness may be used for negative 
reasons such as escape from prob- 
lems or alleviation of boredom, of 
course, and Dr. Weil makes clear the 
difference between use and abuse of 
drugs. Since history began men have 
used both natural substances and 
chemicals to alter consciousness. 
The drug problem is essentially no 
different today than in the past ex- 
cept that many persons now prefer 
marijuana, LSD, heroin and various 
amphetamines or barbiturates to al- 
cohol, which Weil considers one of 
the worst drugs of all. 

Although Dr. Weil skillfully ex- 
plodes many existing myths about 
drugs his book is really about con- 
sciousness. He recommends medita- 
tion as the best way to become 
aware of a higher consciousness.

Along with any pioneer whose the- 
ories upset the status quo. Dr. Weil 
will be challenged, scoffed at, vilified 
or even worse — ignored. But his list 
of credentials is imposing. Besides 
his medical training Dr. Weil has 
been an advisor to the National Insti- 
tute of Mental Health. He did his 
internship in the Haight-Ashbury dis- 
trict of San Francisco and worked 
many years with drug users both on 
the street and in the laboratory. His 
double-blind placebo tests proved be- 
yond reasonable doubt that people 
often will get high if they believe 
they have ingested drugs when in 
fact they have not. Most people mis- 
takenly assume that altered states of 
consciousness come chemically from 
without when in actuality they come 
from within. A drug may trigger a 
high by altering the central nervous 
system but the high itself unfolds 
from within. The widely different 
results in the experience of each user 
are due in part to his expectations 
and influenced by his surroundings at 
the time of drug use. 

I am especially excited about Dr. 
Weil's book because during my 28 
years in show business I witnessed 
many of the phenomena Weil writes 
about. For years I have been puzzled 
by the misinformation and hysteria 
surrounding drugs, the confusing of 
condition with cause, the legal mess 
and our blindness to our very alco- 
holic society. 

Alan Watts and Michael Crichton 
have added their enthusiastic en- 
dorsements. My advice is: Read this 
book. I think you will be stimulated, 
intrigued, irritated or relieved and 
possibly impelled to take your own 
glimpse of a larger awareness 
through a properly expanded con- 
sciousness. The possibilities are al- 
ways there if we let our intuitive 
forces join our intellect to evolve into 
total conscious awareness. — Paul 
Severson.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SPEAKING IN 
TONGUES by John P. Kildahl, Harper 
and Row. New York, NX, 1972, I 10 
pages, $4.95. 

TONGUES OF MEN AND ANGELS by 
William J. Samarin, Macmillan Co., New 
York, N.Y., 1972, 277 pages. $7.95. 

Glossolalia. or speaking in tongues, 
generally is associated with the Pen- 
tecostal churches although in recent 
years the phenomenon has been 
taken up by many other churches, 
both Protestant and Roman Catholic. 
Two recent, very different books ex- 
amine the nature of glossolalia and 
of those persons who practice it. Dr. 
Kildahl, director of pastoral psy- 
chology at New York Theological 
Seminary, approaches the topic from 
a psychological basis. His book is 
divided into 10 chapters covering 
such things as the ego psychology of 
the tongue-speaker and whether or 
not glossolalia is a gift of the Holy 
Spirit. Professor Samarin. an an- 
thropologist and linguist at the Uni- 
versity of Toronto, is mainly con- 
cerned with the linguistic study of 
speaking in tongues and its com- 
parison with other forms of lan- 
guage. Oddly enough. Samarin is more 
sympathetic to those who speak in 
tongues than is his theologian coun- 
terpart. 

In his research Dr. Kildahl found 
that glossolalists are "more sub- 
missive, suggestible and dependent 
in the presence of authority than 
nontongue-speakers." He also sug- 
gests that glossolalia resembles hyp- 
notic trance, a state usually fortified 
by the group's leader. Speaking in 
tongues often may arise from anx- 
iety over a life crisis, psychological 
regression and a "magical" mech- 
anistic approach to God. This leads 
Kildahl to ask whether glossolalia is 
a gift of the Holy Spirit. Since speak- 
ing in tongues is a subjective ex- 
perience which can be neither proven 
nor disproven by objective stan-

dards, he tends to answer "yes." 

A second question is whether a 
glossolalist is speaking in an actual 
language. The answer, says Pro- 
fessor Samarin, is "no." He states, 
"Glossolalia is not mystery ... it is 
strings of syllables, made up of 
sounds taken from among all those 
that the speaker knows, put together 
more or less haphazardly but which 
nevertheless emerge as word-like and 
sentence -like units of realistic, 
language-like rhythm and melody." 
This is a linguistic definition and one 
problem of linguistics is that its own 
jargon tends to be bewildering to the 
average person. 

Professor Samarin compares glos- 
solalia with baby talk and pig Latin. 
His approach is sympathetic and he 
has some sharp comments for those 
who take a purely psychological ap- 
proach (like Dr. Kildahl). Samarin 
denies there is any paranormal com- 
ponent to glossolalia, unless it is a 
true xenoglossia, or speaking an ac- 
tual language unknown to the speak- 
er. (Dr. Ian Stevenson has studied 
cases of xenoglossia and is quoted at 
one point by Professor Samarin.) 
The biblical reference to glossolalia 
in Acts presents an instance where 
the glossola lists spoke actual lan- 
guages understood by their audience. 
However, this instance was not nec- 
essarily paranormal as many of the 
apostles spoke several languages. 

The religious value of speaking in 
tongues will depend on one's bias. 
Those who practice glossolalia be- 
lieve it is worthwhile whereas those 
who do not generally scorn it But it 
remains an intriguing phenomenon 
and both these volumes have much 
to offer those persons interested in 
this topic. — Paul Dimmitt.

FROM THE 



SAUCER BUFFS REBUKED 

When saucer buffs find themselves 
wondering why they are not taken 
seriously, they might consider the 
case of the Aerial Phenomena Re- 
search Organization representative 
quoted in Vivian Buchan's "UFO 
Damages Iowa Soybeans" (Febru- 
ary 1973 Fate). 

Surrealistic speculations about 
damaged spaceships and/or their 
missions ("to take samples of earth 
soil") would be amusing if they 
were not so damaging to the cause 
of sober investigation. That UFOs 
have remained unexplained for so 
long may be due in large part to the 
antics of flying saucer fans whose 
talk of extraterrestrial visitors — 
as if they had been proven so — has 
made UFOlogy appear to outsiders 
as little more than a cult of "true 
believers," a kind of space age 
spiritualism. 

Walt Andrus of the Midwest Net- 
work of UFOs is to be commended 
for his courage in labeling this kind 
of conclusion-jumping as "science 
fiction" — which of course is precise- 
ly what it is. The UFO problem, 
which is as complex and difficult as 
any to which human Intellect has 
addressed itself, deserves more 
thoughtful consideration than most

saucer buffs seem willing to give it. 

— Jerome Clark, Moorhead, Minn. 

Bill Atkinson of Des Moines, Iowa, 
a member of APRO, suggests the 
mysterious depressions in the Iowa 
soybean fields were made by extra- 
terrestrial spacecraft. His theory 
seems plausible to me. 

Mr. Walter Andrus differs with 
him, calling his remarks "wild 
statements." Mr. Andrus says, "At- 
kinson has no justification for claim- 
ing craft from outer space caused 
the depressions. We can't decide it 
was a UFO until all other possi- 
bilities have been definitely elimi- 
nated." In my opinion, Mr. Atkin- 
son's theory is well-founded and all 
"other possibilities" have been 
eliminated. 

Mr. Andrus goes on to say that 
"these science-fiction accounts of 
occurrences make for good reading 
but can hurt any real scientific 
study of UFOs, It's like crying wolf 

— when the real thing happens no 
one will believe it." May I say that 
the real thing is happening right 
now and the diehards are loath to 
accept the facts? 

UFOs are not purely physical phe- 
nomena; they have a spiritual con- 
notation. Science is not going to 
solve the mystery by ignoring the 
facts. Let's quit tinkering with "sci- 
entific proof" and get on with ac- 
cepting the space brothers' offered 
assistance before it's too late. — 
Elmer O. Mengel, Wiliiston, N.D. 

DO RUSSIANS HAVE EDGE? 

I have just read "Our Parapsy- 
chologists Visit the U.S.S.R" (No- 
vember 1972 Fate) and I sincerely 
believe the Russians have the ad- 
vantage on the United States in the 
fields of parapsychology, mental 
hygiene and mind development. 

The Russians do not have the 
religious beliefs that we hold —

research into the mind. Our psy- 
chologists have problems in getting 
around religion while making studies 
of the mind. 

If the Russians have accepted the 
truth that ESP is as much a part 
of human nature as the other five 
senses and if they are learning to 
put it to practical use, then they 
are truly on the path to greater 
human enlightenment. — O. W. Da-

MONSTER RELATIVES 

Noting the sketch of the Missouri 
monster in the December 1972 Fate 
I was astounded by its close resem- 
blance to an ancient drawing from 
Tassili in the Sahara which appears 
in Erich von Daniken's book, 
Chariots of the Gods. Also, facing 
page 97 in von Daniken's book, a 
photo of another creature shows a 
close resemblance to the Missouri 
monster. 

Is it possible that creatures from 
other planets are in residence on 
this earth? — Clifton E, Spoor, De- 
land, Fla. 

In the article on the Missouri 
monster Mr. Harrison's young 
daughter reported that the monster 
seemed to be carrying something 
that looked like a dead dog flecked 
with blood. Although I cannot dis- 
pute her report I question whether 
her state of panic might have in- 
fluenced her observation. I know of 
no thoroughly and scientifically in- 
vestigated incident where it has 
been unquestionably determined that 
these unidentified monsters have 
acted violently toward any living 
species. 

Authentic monster and UFO re- 
ports have three common charac- 
teristics: 

(1) Although the observers under- 
standably are frightened, there 
seems to have been no attempt to 
cause fear.

(2) There never has been an au- 
thentic documented report of an at- 
tempted attack — despite provocation. 

(3) Monsters and UFOs have ex- 
hibited a genuine curiosity, patience 
and at times unmistakable friendli- 
ness toward observers. 

If the Missouri monster was alien 
to this planet and appeared after 
UFO activity, as reported, this ac- 
cords with many reports. What can 
account for this? Could the monster 
be a pet or mascot aboard a UFO 
and accidentally left behind? May 
this be intentional — possibly as an 
experiment? Whatever the case, the 
monsters always disappear as sud- 
denly and mysteriously as they 
came, without leaving a trace. Are 
they picked up again? 

It is unfortunate that scientific 
observers aren't called in immedi- 
ately at the time of these appear- 
ances. There certainly is something 
to be learned — and not by an over- 
zealous farmer with a shotgun or a 
small-town sheriff with an hysterical 
posse. — W. Armstrong, Chase, Mich 


FLOURISHING IN FLORIDA 

I think Mr. Bayless is inaccurate 
in "The Decline of Parapsychology" 
(Fate February 1973). I have been 
a student of parapsychology for 
more than 40 years and never have 
I seen such interest as at the pres- 
ent time. I find today that people 
will speak up about their psychic 
experiences in a completely un- 
inhibited fashion. 

I wish to refute Mr. Bayless' s 
opening statement: "It now must 
be apparent to everyone interested 
in parapsychology that the entire 
field is suffering such a tremendous 
decline that it is nearly impossible 
to find any form of psi phenomena 
worth studying." 

Mr. Bayless should visit Florida, 
I have found here a great medium,

Aside from this remarkable me- 
dium who outdoes anything I have 
witnessed previously, I can tell Mr. 
Bayless that I have attended pro- 
grams on parapsychology at the 
University of Bridgeport, Conn., and 
New College in Sarasota, Fla., and 
I know of two orthodox churches 
where spiritual healing is practiced. 
The pastor of one openly describes 
his astral projections. 

Is this a decline? — Florence E. 
Sutphin. Sarasota, Fla. 


ANY INTEREST IN UFOs? 

There seems to be a growing feel- 
ing that the public is no longer in- 
terested in UFOs. I believe this is 
not true. To back up my statement 
I would mention the Aerial Phenom- 
ena Research Organization and the 
National Investigations Committee 
on Aerial Phenomena which to- 
gether have about 24.000 "uninter- 
ested" members like myself. 

Possibly since the termination of 
Project Bluebook and the publica- 
tion of the Condon Report some per- 
sons have lost interest but sightings 
are still being made and these gen- 
erate new interest. 

It's your job to give us the news 
about UFOs. — Peter Petrone, Wil- 
lingborn, N.J. 


MANKIND'S AFFLICTION 

Curtis Fuller's discussion of the 
anti-Establishment scientists in the 
August 1972 Fate brings to mind a 
few more notables whose findings 
were and are in direct contradiction 
to the pompous pronouncements of 
"recognized authority." 

Take for instance Col. James 
Churchward whose series of books on 
the Lost Continent of Mu, although

founded on irrefutable evidence, 
have never been accepted by the 
Establishment. When his findings are 
generally accepted, as they eventual- 
ly must be, all existing texts on geog- 
raphy, geology, archaeology, an- 
thropology and ancient history will 
have to be scrapped and entirely 
rewritten. No wonder the scientific 
bigwigs shudder at the name of 
Churchward! 

Others I might mention are Edgar 
Cayce. L. Ron Hubbard (Dianetics) 
and Howard Scott (Technocracy). 
The latter probably requires the 
most urgent attention. Recent com- 
puter studies at M.I.T. and the con- 
sidered opinions of some of our fore- 
most environmental experts simply 
confirm what Scott and his asso- 
ciates have been telling the Ameri- 
can people for the past 40 years: 
unless our present idiotic politico- 
economic system is discarded and 
replaced by proper functional con- 
trol, catastrophe and chaos lie 
ahead. 

There is disagreement on the 
length of time it will take for the 
money-chasers to destroy our en- 
vironment completely and to make 
the earth uninhabitable, but some 
knowledgeable experts give us only 
until the end of this decade.

ment is an affliction . . . common to

of the girl, the attack consisted of 
having her face licked. Vicious ani- 
mals indeed! The authors admit these 
creatures would have no trouble kill- 
ing a human being. Then why don't 
they? 

It seems to me the animals in their 
own clumsy way were being playful. 
But such a large animal being play- 
ful is likely to inflict at least some 
minor wound on his "victim." 

Somehow these animals seem to 
have learned to respect humans. But 
where and from whom? — Dauid 
Keilbarth, Oklahoma City, Ofcla. 


POT CALLS THE KETTLE BLACK 

With reference to Carla Davis's 
letter ("The Lockout" July 1972 
Fate) I would advise her not to 
have qualms about fickle friends who 
turned away when she started deal- 
ing in occult items, She should recall 
that the so-called friends worship a 
mythical god; they pray to spirits 
whose existence is unproved. They 
reinforce their beliefs with crosses, 
pictures, odd relics from a so-called 
Holy Land. In their orthodox reli- 
gions they fast, chant, roll on the 
floor, talk in strange tongues, make 
burnt offerings, light candles and 
hold vigils. When one of them dies he 
must have holy words spoken over 
him — and in some religions a priest 
or minister is paid to see that the 
dear departed gets to Heaven and is 
not left floating around in a nether- 
world. 

All religions are based on mythol- 
ogy, not on proven facts. Are they 
not occult? — Aiuin B. Clark, Harris- 
burg, Ore. 

MORE THAN COINCIDENCE 

Sometimes the events that follow 
psychic experiences are stranger 
than the episodes themselves!

REPORT FROM THE READERS 

(Continued from page 146) 
ing an unusual experience in the 
lives of my former wife and me. The 
publication of the article led to a 
tangle of circumstances that have 
left me thoroughly puzzled. 

During the correspondence with 
Fate's managing editor I was asked 
to furnish some information for the 
magazine's hies, including a list of 
names of persons who attended the 
meeting described in the article. I 
was also asked the question: "If it 
should become necessary to use the 
names should they be fictionalized?" 
I replied that since the group had 
scattered, I thought it best to dis- 
guise the names.

On the average a man of 25, 
who doesn't smoke cigarettes,

There had been two women in our 
research group named "Laura." The 
first had dropped out of our group 
long before the experience described 
in "The Reincarnation of Francisco." 
but the second "Laura" and her 
husband have been active in the 
group all along and are very close 
friends of mine. In preparing the 
material for the magazine I had to 
replay some tapes to determine ex- 
actly who attended the particular 
meeting concerned. For some reason 
Laura and her husband had not been 
there. But I did discuss the article 
with them and when it was finished I 
read the manuscript to them for 
their criticism. So actually both 
women named Laura were in my 
mind as I worked on the story. How- 
ever, since they were not involved in 
the episode their names never were 
mentioned in my correspondence 
with Fate's managing editor. 

My former wife Louise had given 
me permission to use her name but 
the editors of Fate decided it too 
should be fictionalized due to her 
remarriage. I did not see galley 
proofs of the article before publica- 
tion so this was unknown to me. 
Imagine my surprise when I opened 
the magazine containing my article 
to find the words, "In the early days 
of my marriage to Laura. . . ." 

Of course this caused a certain 
amount of embarrassment for both 
Lauras, for my former wife Louise 
and for me. The question is: From 
all the thousands of available female 
names to choose from, why did the 
editors choose one which had such a 
close association (unknown to them) 
with the whole article? 

I have a strange theory. In think- 
ing about both Lauras' involvement 
while I worked on the manuscript, 
did I somehow imprint my brain 
vibrations into the very paper so that 
the editors handling it got the im- 
pression of the name from the manu- 
script itself?

FACTS FOR LOUIS NIZER 

In reply to Louis Nizer's assertion 
that mind reading is trickery ("I See 
by the Papers." September 1972 
Fate) I myself have the gift of re- 
ceptivity as well as the ability to 
send brain waves. 

I first played this "game," as I call 
it, during the First World War. It 
was brought to my attention by a 
French girl who had toyed with it 
while in a convent. Naturally there 
were guards around and the girls 
would concentrate to make some pu- 
pil carry out an unspoken order — 
such as to kiss one of the guards. 
Naturally, the "game" gave rise to 
much merriment. 

My French friend and I decided to 
experiment. She would place a hand 
on my wrist and concentrate, my 
eyes would be closed, and I would 
carry out the appointed task. I was 
allowed to move freely around the 
room with no pressure from my 
friend's hand. With practice I got 
better and better. In time I could 
perform the task instantaneously. In 
other words, I didn't go from object 
to object. My first action was right. 
How would Mr. Nizer explain this? 

I came across only one person who 
was so psychic herself that I didn't 
even need her hand on my wrist to 
get her message. I marched directly 
to a full sewing basket and picked up 
the color of thread that had been 
mentally ordered. 

I have performed this feat in the 
presence of many persons. I can be 
out of the room, completely out of 
hearing. The task is decided on and I 
simply enter the room and perform 
the task, 

I fear our critic, Mr. Nizer, is 
badly misled in his idea that all this 
is trickery. I do not say there may 
not be tricksters but I know the

PROVE YOUR PSYCHIC POWERS 
WITH A 

PLANCHETTE! 



THE PLANCHETTE IS USED AS A MECHANI- 
CAL MEANS FOR AUTOMATIC WRITING. IT 
AIDS MANIFESTATIONS WHICH HAVE NO 
OTHER WAY OF BECOMING CONCRETE. 

Successful experimenters report finding 
the Planehette a highly effective aid to 
automatic writing and say they prefer it 
to any other method. They particularly 
find it much faster than the Ouija Board, 
which is used to spell out letters one by 
one. The Planehette is especially favored 
by those who prefer to work in medita- 
tive solitude. Our authentic Planehette, 
about six inches in length, is beautifully 
hand-crafted of smooth wood and given 
a high lustre with a wood-resin polish. 
HOW THE PLANCHETTE WORKS: 
Specially-fitted pencil forms one leg of 
planehette, the other two rolling free on 
ball bearings. These ball bearings permit 
the slightest indication of movement to 
take effect, the tiniest wisp of pressure 
transmitted through your hand. Only a 
superior product, an authentic psychic 
appliance, could have this expensive 
ballbearing feature. 

Complete Instructions for use of the plan- 
ehette, as well as for Its care and protection, 
are Included with this advanced psychic in- 
atrument.

genuine ability for mental reception 
exists, entirely divorced from trick- 
ery. _ Emma P. AJartinelii, San 
Francisco, Calif. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the Septem- 
ber 1972 "I See by the Papers." I 
quote: "We know of no medium who 
can call forth ESP at will as the 
stage magicians claim to demon- 
strate. But this is a far cry from 
denying the existence of all psychic 
ability." 

From my own limited psychic ex- 
perience I am convinced that it is 
indeed true that "The wind bloweth 
where it listeth, and thou hearest the 
sound thereof, but canst not tell 
whence it cometh, and whither it 
goeth: so is every one that is born of 
the Spirit." (St. John 3:8). 

Indeed, spiritual or psychic expe- 
riences cannot be induced or repeat-

Mendham, N.J. 

WORD FROM A CHIEF 

I am a descendant of those "an- 
cient Americans with long noses and 
beards." As chief of the Mishona 
Tribe I feel qualified to answer the 
letters you printed in response to 
your article on the Olmecs. Appar- 
ently most investigators into our cul- 
ture only skim the top of our legends 
and myths, then fit them into pre- 
conceived notions. 

Beginning with the works of James 
Churchward, "The Children of Mu" 
series mentioned by Ordean Larson, 
we feel they are the work of a 
deluded Englishman with a Victo- 
rian's romantic outlook on the past. 
And contrary to what Churchward 
wrote, Quetzalcoatl was represented 
by a feathered serpent and not the 
sun. 

Your reader Mrs. E. S. Bottoms 
holds to an equally ridiculous theory 
that our people came to this land 
from "Palestine and its environs." 
While I will agree that a few Palestin- 


REPORT FROM THE READERS 


16] 


ians may have come over, it is 
asinine to assume that all of us are 
descended from them. If you look 
closely at those of us who are left, 
you will notice that we look more 
Anglo-Saxon than Latin. In fact, due 
to differences between our appear- 
ance and the stylistic view of how an 
Amerindian should look, we now call 
ourselves white in our legal trans- 
actions. 

A thorough study of the legends 
and myths of the white Indians in 
America would provide these "ex- 
perts" with an astonishing revela- 
tion. — B. A. Hadley, Lackland AFB, 
Tex. 


SOME NIT-PICKING 
In "Report from the Readers" 
(November 1972 Fate) Raymond 
Bayless tells of having recorded para- 
normal voices. He states some of 
these voices have definite tonal qual- 
ities permitting the listener to de- 
termine whether the entity speaking 
is a man, woman or child. This is an 
assumption that cannot be proven 
nor disproven. The tonal qualities of 
voices of men and women are such 
that their sex cannot be determined 
by their normal speech. Some men 
can use falsetto and some women 
speak in a voice more masculine 
than the average man's. 

We have the recordings of the 
voices of many dead persons; we 
have Mr. Bayless's tape recordings. 
We also have, thanks to Bell Tele- 
phone technicians, a voice-print 
machine. Properly used, this ma- 
chine can identify a person by his 
voice pattern if he or she is talking 
in person, on a telephone, over the 
radio or on a tape recording. Why 
don't Mr. Bayless and others re- 
searching spirit voices put them to 
the test of the voice-print machine?

YOU MAY HAVE LIVED 
ON EARTH BEFORE! 

New places, or people you pass in the street, may seem oddly 
familiar to you. Have you known them in a previous life?

for instruction in the use of your higher creative endowment, you

gent men and women to soar to new heights of achievement, new 
freedom, new contentment in life.
